Deeside Orchestra’s Summer Concert this year has a distinctly Spanish flavour. The programme is headlined by Rodrigo’s famous Concierto de Aranjuez featuring the celebrated classical guitar soloist, Ian Watt. Born in Aberdeenshire, Ian is an exceptional musician who has rapidly established an international reputation for the excellence of his playing. You can learn more about Ian on his website by clicking here.

Also included in the concert programme are the Ballet Music from “Le Cid” by Massenet, an opera set in the city of Burgos in Northern Spain, and the Symphony No.2 by Camille Saint-Saëns.
