East Lothian Council's Instrumental Music Service was delighted to present their first ever Digital Concert on Thursday 8 October 2020.

They were very excited to be able to come together again that evening for a virtual performance to perform a musical piece by our extremely talented Instrumental Instructor, Liz Woodsend.

It was an incredible opportunity for our young people to collaborate with our new friends from RAF Music over the last month. RAF Music prepared webinars for our young musicians and over the last week we have enjoyed live Google Meets sessions with these inspiring professional musicians. It has been fantastic to be able to have the young people come together again to share their passion for music.

As a pupil body at Knox Academy we wondered what we could do to reach out to our local community, let them know that we are thinking of them and hopefully bring a smile to faces during this difficult time.

Music is a universal language and good for our health (physical and mental). We really enjoy playing it, so we decided to put our musical talents to good use and put together some performances for your enjoyment.

We want to make this music available to as many as people as possible, but in particular those who may be isolated or in hospital and care homes. We would also like to dedicate it to everyone in our community serving in frontline and essential services – we are in awe of what you are doing and truly grateful for the sacrifices you are making to help us all....
