Cornerstone has scored a hit with Scotland’s national orchestra, which will perform a one-off summer concert in aid of the social care charity.
A string quartet from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO) will perform Summer Strings at the Cowdray Hall, Aberdeen, tonight.
The concert will be an evening of light, popular classics by Mozart, Ravel, Piazzolla, Gershwin and Borodin.
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.”
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.”
The concert has been supported by Aberdeen-based oil and gas operator CNR International. Barry Duncan, CNR International VP Finance, said: “We are delighted to support Cornerstone and the RSNO, I’m sure it will be an unforgettable experience for all concerned. We have supported Cornerstone for a number of years and never cease to be impressed by the outstanding charity work they perform in our region.”
