Kids ready to per­form at hos­pi­tal

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - BIG NIGHT OUT -

YOUNG per­form­ers are due to bring mu­sic to the Royal Aberdeen Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal. Stars from Aberdeen In­ter­na­tional Youth Fes­ti­val (AIYF) are set to put a smile on the faces of pa­tients at the city’s chil­dren’s hos­pi­tal. The Zil­iah String Trio will be do­ing the rounds on the wards on Mon­day. Ste­wart Aitken, pic­tured, artis­tic di­rec­tor of AIYF, said: “Many of these young­sters are fac­ing up to very se­ri­ous ill­nesses and have been in hos­pi­tal for long pe­ri­ods of time. “We wanted to do some­thing that would help to brighten their day.” The Zilia String Trio, all grad­u­ates of the pres­ti­gious Lon­don Royal Academy of Mu­sic, will be play­ing a se­lec­tion from their ex­ten­sive reper­toire, which in­cludes clas­si­cal, tra­di­tional, jazz and pop­u­lar mu­sic. There will be a sec­ond set of mu­si­cal vis­i­tors to the hos­pi­tal later in the week when Lit­tle Larks, a Glas­gow-based mu­si­cal theatre group, pays a visit.
