Around 150 people came to Castle Fraser on Sunday 18th July 2021 to enjoy an afternoon of music from the ACO Quartet and four young musicians – Lydia Cooke, Ife Akiode, Faith Woolsey and Hannah Reid.
The weather was fair and not too hot, and it was great to see so many people, both young and young at heart, enjoying the music.
We heard lovely solo playing from flautist Lydia Cooke, clarinetist Ife Akiode, and trumpeter Hannah Reid. Lydia also played two beautiful flute duos with Faith Woolsey. Following the young musicians, the ACO Quartet (Aiden Mazur, Alexandria Grant, Jean Fletcher and Gareth John) took centre stage and performed a variety of pieces ending with the wonderful McMozart’s Eine Kleine Bricht Moonlicht Nicht Musik by Professor Teddy Bor – which was great fun!
