Aden Plays New Sound with Festival of Music
As part of sound, the North East Scotland's festival of new music, Aden Country Park will be hosting “Daniel’s Beard: Music and Nonsense” on Friday 16th November at 1pm in the Aberdeenshire Farming Museum Theatre.
Daniel’s Beard will play new music for all the family including the performance of pieces written by local primary school children based on settings of the nonsense poems of Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll - Jabberwocky, The Owl and The Pussycat and The Quangle-Wangle's Hat - by Lenny Sayers. The concerts will also feature music by Scottish composers old and new, each piece with its own tale to tell.....
Daniel’s Beard is a chamber ensemble made up of some of Scotland’s top musicians and based in Glasgow’s West End. In partnership with Four Acres Charitable Trust, Daniel’s Beard has a performance residency in The Cottier Theatre, Hyndland, where the group puts on regular concerts featuring music that is at the core of the chamber music repertoire alongside lesser known gems that they discover along the way… The name of the ensemble is taken from the portrait of pioneering designer Daniel Cottier, which hangs in the bar at The Cottier Theatre.
Tickets for the event are £8, £5 (concessions) and free for school children. Due to the small nature of the Aden Theatre seating may well be at a premium so please book early to avoid disappointment.
The Aden Café/Restaurant and Aden Gift Shop will be open throughout the day so why not make a day out in Aden Country Park where you will be treated to music, shopping and a fresh cuppa.
