String Ensemble Day

Dr Aaron McGregor
Part of Inverurie Music Workshops and Masterclasses
Kemnay Church Centre

The Inverurie Music workshop season will finish this season with a bonus String Ensemble Day led Dr Aaron McGregor on Saturday 29th June 2024 at Kemnay Church Centre. This is an extra session arranged at short notice and we are grateful to Aaron for giving us more of his time and expert tuition. There are places for around 20 string players (violin, viola, cello and double bass) who will come together to play music chosen by Aaron – likely to include Bartok and Telemann.

Find some highlights from previous workshops here.

If you would like to attend, please get in touch by emailing with your name, address, phone number and instrument.

The cost for the day is £25 standard price. There is a reduced cost of £15 for those in full-time education, and for those on disability or low-income benefits. Pay by bank transfer (Account Name: Inverurie Music – Sort Code: 80-08-41 – Account number: 00842458) – or by cash or card on the day.
