A leading land and estate agent is sponsoring a unique Perth concert which will showcase some of the district’s finest young performing artists, with the ultimate aim of raising local awareness of Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance.
Perthshire based Bell Ingram is backing St John’s Perth and Kinross Youth Festival Concert which takes place this Friday (26th February). Located at the prestigious Perth Concert Hall, the spectacle is the first event of its type to be staged at the venue and will bring together over 200 young musicians and dancers from a variety of local schools and organisations.
The Youth Festival programme will appeal to all ages and include soloists, choirs, bands, an orchestra and dance, giving the youngsters a platform to demonstrate their diverse talents to a wide audience.
The sponsorship comes as part of Bell Ingram’s ongoing support of Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance, which will be the principal beneficiary of the funds raised by the Youth Festival Concert.
Victoria McCusker, Marketing Manager at Bell Ingram, said: “We are very pleased to be able to support the concert as we share a common goal: raising funds to support the operation of Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance.
“It’s set to be an engaging evening and it’s fantastic to see so many young people keen to get involved and share their musical abilities with the local community and perhaps even further afield.
“The charity is very close to our hearts at Bell Ingram, so we would encourage anyone interested to come along for a fun and entertaining evening, which will in turn help and support a fantastic cause.”
The St John’s Perth and Kinross Youth Festival Concert will start at 7.30pm on Friday 26th February at Perth Concert Hall. The event will be hosted by local journalist Maureen Young and the “Voice of the Tattoo” Alasdair Hutton.
