The award-winning Bells Up! were the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland 2011 recipients of the June Emerson Wind Music Launchpad Prize for outstanding wind/brass ensembles. The group was formed two years ago by senior students studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. This afternoon they will play a wide variety of music, and pride themselves in being a platform through which young Scottish arrangers and composers can be heard.
This is the first performance in our new North Star Series, which aims to support young musicians whose opportunities for professional performance are limited by their own lack of financial and marketing resources.
Eoin Tonner – Trumpet
Holly Boddice –Trumpet
Andrew McLean – French Horn
Cillian O Ceallachain – Trombone
Rachel Brown – Tuba
