Linlithgow girls on song

Have your say

Linlithgow singers Katie Marshall (14), Katie Mackenzie (15) and Julia Stevens (13), will sing with the National Youth Choir of Scotland girls’ choir in its 2012 performance debut on Wednesday, April 11, at Glasgow’s City Halls.

The 70-strong choir will be joined by conductor Christopher Bell and world-class pianists Philip Moore and Andrew West for a performance of Richard Rodney Bennett’s ‘‘Letters to Lindbergh’’

Christopher Bell, conductor and NYCoS artistic director, said: “The music of Richard Rodney Bennett has always been a firm favourite of mine to perform with young voices.

‘‘Letters to Lindbergh is a particularly enjoyable piece and I’m sure audiences will love listening to it as much as the girls’ choir and I love performing it.’’

This concert marks the end of a six-day residential course, held at Loretto School in Musselburgh, where the choir learn and rehearse all the music for the year ahead. Choir members travel from across Scotland to be put through their paces and fine tune their singing abilities.
