Our exciting Music Factory project is now in its final stage. Budding young composers from Moray, Aberdeenshire, Edinburgh, Fife, East Ayrshire and South Ayrshire have been working diligently since November on their new compositions. Composers Alasdair Nicolson and Stephen Deazley have been overseeing their progress, along with small groups of our SCO musicians.
Pupils have not only had the unique opportunity to hear their musical ideas played back to them, but some have also had the bright idea to include themselves in the ensemble and rehearse alongside the professional musicians! Next week we begin the final process of recording their ‘World Premiere’ pieces, and we’re all really looking forward to hearing the final products of the project.
