Braemar will be the setting this year for a poignant event celebrating the centenary of the World War One Armistice. The highlight of the concert on late afternoon Sunday, 18th November will be Paul Mealor and the Aberdeen University Chamber Choir, fresh from a performance at the Carnegie Hall in New York, and will commemorate the young men in the community lost, as well as celebrating our present armed forces.
Organiser Fiona Hunter said: “Our costumed tea-concerts in Braemar have been very popular every summer and have attracted quite a following. The audiences have all been moved by remembering the young men named on the Braemar War Memorial and learning about where they died serving their country. We have decided to mark the Armistice with a larger event and preparations are well under way for something a bit different including some well-known faces.”
The event will evoke with the use of period costume for the performers, atmospheric lighting, stage scenery and film effects. The music programme will be varied from pipers, church bells, piano, fiddle and feature a variety of outstanding performers .
