Members of a leading national orchestra are set to entertain north-east music lovers as part of a special concert entitled “Summer Strings from the RSNO” in aid of Cornerstone.
A string quartet formed by members of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO), will grace the Cowdray Hall in Aberdeen on Thursday, June 19 2014.
The traditional ensemble will perform a range of popular classics, including music for string quartet by Mozart, Ravel, Piazzolla, Gershwin and Borodin.
Money raised from the concert will benefit Cornerstone – one of Scotland’s largest charities and a leading provider of services for people with disabilities and additional support needs.
Capital Document Solutions is a long-time supporter of the RSNO. The company’s founder and Managing Director, Tom Flockhart, said: “I’m certain the string quartet will prove popular with Aberdeen music lovers, while the concert will help support Cornerstone carry on with their excellent work”
“We are delighted to continue our company’s long-standing support of the RSNO, particularly with the organisation’s commitment to bringing its talented musicians to venues across the country.”
Manus Carey, RSNO Executive Producer, said: “We’re thrilled to be supporting Cornerstone and to have the opportunity to connect in this way. This is the start of what promises to be a fruitful partnership between Scotland’s national orchestra and a vital social care service provider.”
Lisa Duthie, Cornerstone’s Director of Corporate Relations and Fundraising, said: “To have RSNO perform this special, one-off concert in aid of Cornerstone is fantastic, and we really appreciate the support shown by both RSNO and CNR International”
“Music plays a major role in the life of the people Cornerstone supports – it can energise and stimulate individuals, and helps them to express themselves and communicate with others – so it is very fitting that RSNO have offered to support us through this summer concert.”
Cornerstone provides care and support services for adults, young people and children across Scotland who live with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health problems and other support needs. For further information visit www.cornerstone.org.uk
