This summer Glencoe Youth Hostel will be welcoming Spanish Youth Orchestra "Orquesta de la Berzosa" on their visit to Lochaber.
The 17 youngsters, accompanied by the renowned English conductor Adrian Leaper, orchestra director Lilla Szabadfi and director of the music centre in 'La Berzosa' Virginia Piccone, will be joined by Lochaber children and their strings teachers Hilary Fielding and Sandra Hollingdale for an exciting week of music making.
Not only will the young Spanish musicians be visiting some of the schools for mini workshops/rehearsals and short concerts but on three nights they will also be performing together with local musicians aged 7 to 17 as one grand Spanish & Scottish Youth Orchestra.
At present preparations and rehearsals are entering the final stages, both in Berzosa, Spain and in Lochaber, Scotland!
We'll be keeping you up to date with more information about the concert nights,
the exciting mix of their musical repertoire (partly customized to match up musical traditions of both countries)...and also about what they are up to when they allow their instruments to cool down a wee bit.
