The award-winning Scottish Chamber Orchestra (SCO) Wind Ensemble will perform at Fyvie Castle next week.

The ensemble will perform at the castle on Tuesday, June 28 and will then visit The Barn in Banchory on Wednesday, June 28 as part of their three-date summer tour on the East coast of Scotland.

The acclaimed ensemble of virtuoso wind players, SCO Winds, will perform a delightful programme of music that showcases the great versatility of their instruments, including the Quartet by French composer Francaix, an enchanting work by Scottish composer Sally Beamish which evokes birdsong, and a masterpiece by Mozart - his Wind Serenade in C Minor.

Described as the "cultural high point of his life", Raff's zesty, vivacious and good humoured Sinfonietta will bring the evening to a rousing end.

The SCO Winds ensemble is made up of a unique collection of talented musicians who are renowned for their superb playing, great characterisation and marvellous music-making.

They are part of the SCO's extensive summer touring programme, which will run from June to September.
