On Monday the 29th July the Incorporated Trades held a concert for members with entertainers from the Aberdeen International Youth Festival.
Now in its 41st year the Aberdeen International Youth Festival is one of the premier arts festivals in the world. The Seven Incorporated Trades are happy to continue their sponsorship of such an important part of Aberdeen cultural activities.
The concert held in Trinity Hall commenced with a performance from Maya Tarasova, a young opera singer from St. Petersburg, Russia who has begun to make a name for herself in her home city through winning a major schools competition in 2012. This is her second visit to Aberdeen International Youth Festival and to Scotland and she is able to come here with support from the St. Petersburg forum. On her visit in 2012 she auditioned for the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where she was well received. However, at only 16 years old she is still too young to be awarded a place at the moment but hopes to try again in the future and we wish her well in her endeavours.
A buffet meal was then followed by a prize draw with the funds raised being used as part of our charitable donations to local charities. (more…)
