Press & Journal 14/06/2008

A North-East music festival that reached its climax last night saw an estimated 5,000 people take part. The Aberdeen and North East Scotland Music Festival featured competitions held across the city, including events at the Cowdray Hall, the Music Hall and St Mark’s Church on Rosemount Viaduct. The final concert took place at Queen’s Cross Church, on Albyn Place last night.

The festival, which ran from Monday to yesterday, is for musicians, singers and actors of all ages, and involves solo performances, duets, trios and groups. Spokeswoman for the festival Mary Rasmussen said the event, which is in its 99th year, was a great success. She said: “As well as being a competitive festival it’s a very friendly and happy experience for everybody involved.”
