A concert in North Berwick will bring together some of Scotland’s best young musicians this weekend.

The event follows the inaugural Scottish Young Musicians competition earlier this year, which saw the country’s most talented young musicians perform at a national final at the Royal Conservatoire in Glasgow.

The event brought together regional winners from across the country, playing a variety of instruments and music.

After months of preparation, the talented musicians only got one opportunity to perform, so North Berwick’s Maureen Morrison, a former member of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, has organised concerts around the country to allow the artists further chances to show off their musical prowess.

She said: “Each region in Scotland held a competition early in the spring term, and the regional winners competed in the grand final at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in May.

“It was a quite extraordinary day. The variety of music, and the high standard of each perform- ance, made it a really wonderful occasion.

“I felt it a pity that, after months of hard work and preparation, these young people should have only one opportunity to perform their pieces for the final – so I decided to organise concerts in other areas to provide them with a wider platform.”

The varied programme of music takes place tomorrow at 6pm in Abbey Church.

Performing on the night will be East Lothian winner Corey Dodds, from Tranent, on classical guitar; Will Archibald, from Dumfries and Galloway, on cello; Juan Wang, from Renfrewshire, on accordian; Eloise Duncan, from Aberdeen, on horn; singer Jasmine Miller, from Falkirk; and Zuzanna Kujawi, from South Lanarkshire, on flute.

Tickets are £10 for adults and £5 for children, while a family ticket is £20 (two adults, two children).

School groups can apply for free balcony tickets via their music teachers.
