This spectacular concert is an annual event which is a highlight in the East Dunbartonshire Council Instrumental Music Service calendar. The concert sold out last year which is 2000 tickets – incredible for such a small local authority.
The Secondary Schools Orchestra is formed from pupils who attend the 8 secondary schools in East Dunbartonshire and/or live within East Dunbartonshire. The Primary Schools choir is formed on an invitation basis from the 32 Primary Schools across the Authority.
The evening will offer a wide variety of seasonal favourites and popular orchestral music.
