Fife Festival of Music

2015 Period A Ends

The 2015 Period A Festival came to a triumphant conclusion on Friday 6th February with a single event incorporating the Young Musician 2015 and the Young Singers Recital Class: 21 & under. A well filled Adam Smith Theatre in Kirkcaldy hosted the event which was a fitting culmination to two weeks of music making in 4 centres throughout Fife: the Carnegie Hall, Dunfermline, the Town Hall, St Andrews and St Bryce Kirk and the Adam Smith Theatre in Kirkcaldy. Photos from the final night and a list of all the class winners are available on the 2015 Results page.

For a chance to hear what it means to some youngsters to take part in the Fife Fetsival of Music then visit the Fife Youth Arts Hub where a short podcast created by their Youth Reporters has been published.

On Monday 2nd February a jam packed Adam Smith Theatre hosted 12 choirs in a non-competitive class. (Only 3 rows in the 460 seater theatre were available for audience members!) Experienced adjudicator, Frikki Walker, was full of compliments for the choirs and the event itself. The photo below shows a representative from each of the choirs, with adjudicator Frikki Walker on the left, at the end of a hugely entertaining evening.
