Two promising oboe players from Aberdeen to perform Britain’s favourite piece of classical music across Europe and Glasgow this month.


22 year-old Mary Noden from Belhelvie and 25 year-old Sarah Cruickshank from Meikle Wartle will perform Vaughan William’s famous composition The Lark Ascending across Europe this month as part of the national pre-professional chamber ensemble, Camerata Scotland.


The 24 ensemble members will travel first to France, before moving on to Spain to perform at several venues, including giving a concert at the prestigious, international Pau Casals Festival. The tour culminates with a homecoming concert at St. Andrews in the Square in Glasgow on the 28th August.


Nominated by Classic FM as the UK’s favourite piece of Classical music for the third year running, The Lark Ascending is a soaring piece for violin and orchestra and represents Vaughan Williams’ lyrical expression of a skylark’s flight over the English countryside. 


NYOS Soloist Kai Gleusteen said “I am looking forward to working with the young musicians and enjoying the pleasure of sharing all the knowledge I have acquired over the years with a receptive and curious group.”
