This year's Programme Launch will be at Aberdeen's Union Square on Thursday 10th June. The Launch of the programme will start at Cineworld on the Upper (First) floor, and will continue in the main atrium with a show performance from as yet un-named groups. (So watch this space). However, a launch event of this scale does not happen all by itself. If you are, or can be in Aberdeen that day, why not get involved? Our Festival Manager can find something suited to your individual expertise.
If you want to help, get involved by contacting Ruth. You can get in touch by comment on this site, on Facebook, or any of our other sites. (Link for our website in title link) Direct emails should be sent to: ruth@aiyf.org; our office telephone number is (01224) 213800.

Free orchestral concert!

Hello all,

Just blogging to let you all know about a unique concert that's coming up at the Music Hall on Thursday 27th May.

The Music Hall will play host to a live streamed concert straight from The Royal Festival Hall in London. The real-time broadcast will feature the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, led by Ivan Fischer, and featuring Julia Fischer on Violin. Here's the programme:

Rossini Overture - The Italian Girl in Algiers
Mendelssohn - Violin Concerto
Rossini - Variazioni a piu istrumenti obbligati
Schubert - Symphony No.5 in B Flat

And, oh yeah, wait a minute. It's totally FREE! This is courtesy of Shell who are doing this as part of their 2009/10 International Concert Series.

If you're interested (and you should be - it's International-quality culture for FREE!) just follow this link that will take you to the Aberdeen Box Office page when yu can book tickets.

See you there!
