Mozart’s ‘Exsultate Jubilate’ with the Fotheringay Chamber Orchestra.

The charity concert will be held in Bearsden Baptist Church, Roman Road, on Sunday, November 2, at 6.30pm.

Alice is in S5 at The Music School of Douglas Academy. She began singing lessons with Ruth Dean at the age of 12 and also studies flute and piano. She hopes one day to be a professional singer. Alice sings with the RSNO Junior Chorus and with the National Youth Choir of Scotland, with whom she sang the Mozart Requiem at the BBC Proms in August. In March 2014 she won the Agnes Duncan trophy for the most outstanding singer under 19 at the Glasgow Music Festival.

Alice will be accompanied by The Fotheringay Chamber Orchestra , which is made up of professional and experienced amateur musicians, many of them resident in Bearsden and Milngavie. Conductor is David Bruce and the leader is Donald McLeod.

Also included in the programme is Mozart’s Symphony Number 25, the ‘Haffner’, and the Horn Concerto No 2 by Richard Strauss, with well-known soloist Fergus Kerr. Fergus plays with all the Scottish orchestras and the Northern Sinfonia in Newcastle.

The concert supports Open Doors, an international ministry serving persecuted Christians and churches worldwide. Admission is by donation at the door. For further information call 956 5246.
