Emma plays on BBC Radio Three
Kilgraston pupil Emma recently took to the BBC Radio Three airwaves as part of the prestigious BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra concert series. Emma, who is in Upper Fourth, plays in the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland and said: “It was a bit daunting thinking about how many people would hear and see the recording but it was worth it in the end.”
Emma has played violin since she was in Primary Three and has been in the National Youth Orchestra for two years, currently auditioning for her third.
She usually attends a camp run by the orchestra but this year, due to COVID, this was cancelled. So instead of having no camp, the NYOS teamed up with the BBC’s SSO.
Emma explained: “The BBC SSO organised the event and recorded it for BBC Radio Three. The piece we’re playing is by a composer C Duncan and it’s called ‘Dance from a Distance’. Each of the members of the NYOS individually recorded their parts at home and the composer was on all the calls with us.”
