The culmination of this festival is a two-part concert.
The first half has “Highlights”, which are outstanding performances selected from a range of classes across the Festival. After the interval there is the final of the Festival’s Concerto Class in which four soloists perform movements from major concertos, accompanied by The Friends of The Festival Orchestra led by Paul Jourdan and conducted by Gordon Bragg.
The preliminary round of the Concerto Class will be held at Stockbridge Parish Church on Fri 1 and Sat 2 January. The main festival will run from Tue 5 to Sat 16 March. All classes are open to the public at no charge.
The full programme is available from late January in: Rae Macintosh Musicroom, 41 Shandwick Place, Edinburgh EH2 4RG or during the Festival at the venues themselves (St Cuthbert’s Church, St Mark’s Church, St Andrew and St Georges West Church and Stockbridge Parish Church).
