Congratulations to Ellen Leslie (S6) who won the regional final for the Notes from Scotland competition which was run by the RSNO.   In conjunction with the Festival of Architecture 2016, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra invited budding composers to write a two - five minute piece of music for an instrumental trio, quartet or quintet of their choice.

 

Each area in Scotland used a local building as a stimulus for their composition and we were delighted that Ellen's composition, inspired by the DCA, was the only one selected from Dundee.  Ellen's composition along with the other finalists from the four other regions of Scotland was performed at the new RSNO Centre in Glasgow during a concert performance on Saturday 18th June.  Ellen's composition was also recorded. You can hear her composition by clicking here.

 

Very well done Ellen!
