Friday Afternoons – A Song for Flight marks the culmination of a wide ranging inter-generational project for over 120 primary school children and high school instrumentalists, and is the third in a series of outreach projects for Milngavie Music Club.
Focusing on the music of Benjamin Britten and his contemporaries, the project began earlier this year with a concert at St Cyprian’s Church in Lenzie. This included a series of workshops and mentored rehearsals during which McOpera’s professional quintet of string players led by Katie Hull worked side-by-side with 19 talented high school musicians from the East Dunbartonshire Instrumental Music Service and the Music School of Douglas Academy to develop ensemble techniques, listening and communication skills, team building and musicianship.
