As the school year draws to a close, it is heartening to see the enthusiasm of local pupils towards their community.
Recently the people of Auchterarder were once again treated to two exceptional lunchtime concerts presented to them by the Community School of Auchterarder, which seems to have become an annual event in the town; a collaboration between the school’s Music Department and the Friends of Aytoun Hall.
Mrs Frances Gillies, Head of Music in the School, presided over the programme, which differed on each day. The School Pipe Band and Drums, led by Mr Stuart Brown, played outside the Aytoun Hall before the start of each concert as well as taking part in the programme. Approximately 80 pupils took part on the Thursday and 60+ on the Friday, all of them displaying musical talents to be envied.
