Aberdeen Youth Big Band, (UK)

Aberdeen International Youth Festival (AIYF)

The Aberdeen Youth Big Band is run by the Music Centre at the Aberdeen City Council, who provide opportunities for pupils to perform in a wide variety of musical groups which includes choirs, bands and orchestras. The discipline involved in learning to play an instrument and playing in groups is an invaluable experience for all young people.

The Music Centre takes place at Northfield Academy from 22 August 2016 and finishes after the spring concerts in 2017. When pupils make sufficient progress, they are invited to attend a Centre to take part in ensemble playing – this provides important opportunities for musical and social development.
