Strings success for Skye musicians
The young musicians were delighted with themselves especially as, for the Plockton Primary School String Ensemble, it was their first ever public performance out with their school environment.
The Elgol Primary School String Trio were overjoyed as they managed to retain the 1st place spot for a 3rd year in a row.
Both groups were really excited to take part and couldn't wait to add some of the adjudicators ideas to their arrangements. They are all looking forward to playing their new and improved pieces at their end of term celebrations. The pupils are taught by The Highland Council’s strings Instructor (temporary) for the area, Mhairi Mackinnon.
Music Development Officer for the Council, Norman Bolton sent congratulations to all involved in these successes and acknowledged the important part the pupils music tuition plays in their wider education and development of life skills, health and wellbeing.
