YMS students have been performing for Music at Blair Atholl for twenty-four years and at the Royal Over Seas League in Edinburgh for around fifteen. Last year they extended their annual Northern tour to include for the first time the World Heritage Site of New Lanark. This year saw two more new concerts at Berwick-upon-Tweed and Eyemouth. And what a success they were!
Tuesday evening saw a sell-out concert at The Maltings in Berwick and Wednesday morning a coffee concert to a record audience at The Hippodrome in Eyemouth.
Pianists Ursula Perks, Leyla Cemiloglu, Damir Durmanovic and Aida Lahlou were joined by violinist David Horvat, cellist Shizuku Tatsuno and guitarist Kevin Loh for the Berwick concert. The Eyemouth concert was given by just David, Shizuku and Kevin, whilst the pianists took the opportunity to walk the Elizabethan walls of Berwick in the bright winter sunshine.
A big thank you to the people of Berwick and Eyemouth for making us so welcome and supporting in such numbers.
If it's Thursday tomorrow, it must be New Lanark!
