The latest day of the Perform in Perth festival featured a number of impressive performances by youngsters from across Perth and Kinross.
So impressed were adjudicators that Secretary Michael Jamieson was moved to offer additional praise to their music teachers and the “high standard of instrumental tuition in the area”.
He also thanked the Creative Connections Fund associated with Perth’s 2021 City of Culture bid for enabling the festival to use Perth Concert Hall for its orchestral classes.
