Glasgow shoppers to be serenaded by Royal Conservatoire students

Some of Scotland’s most talented young musicians are to descend on Princes Square in Glasgow to entertain shoppers during an exclusive afternoon performance.

Traditional musicians from the Junior Conservatoire at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland will perform at the award winning shopping centre on Buchanan Street on Sunday, June 4. The event is an exciting cultural collaboration between Princes Square and the Royal Conservatoire, ranked in the world’s top three for performing arts education and number one in Scotland for graduate employability.

Jenn Adams, Head of the Junior Conservatoire, said: “The Junior Conservatoire empowers and encourages young people to be the best they can be as they grow into accomplished artists and performers.

“This stimulating collaboration with Princes Square offers students on the Junior Conservatoire music programme an opportunity to perform in one of Scotland’s most desirable retail and restaurant locations. Our students look forward to ensuring shoppers and diners at Princes Square have a spring in their step during their exciting afternoon performance.”

Princes Square was named as Scotland’s Favourite Building in a public vote held by the Royal Incorporation of Architects as part of the RIAS’s Festival of Architecture 2016 recognising Scotland’s Top 100 buildings from 1916 to 2015.

Claire Wilkinson, marketing manager of Princes Square, said: “Visits to Princes Square are always special so adding some of Scotland’s top young musical talent will make it even better.”

RCS at Princes Square with the Junior Conservatoire Traditional Music Ensemble gets under way in The Courtyard, Princes Square, at 1pm on Sunday, June 4. More information about the Junior Conservatoire is available by logging on to: rcs.ac.uk/jr
