Portobello High Pupils Perform for the Dalai Lama

During the visit to Scotland by His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, 4 young musicians were chosen to represent the Edinburgh Schools Classical Guitar Ensemble in a musical performance in the Usher Hall prior to his lecture.

 

The 4 guitarists – Isla MacEwan, Kyra Skellett, Elspeth Simpson & Freya Hesse (click image to see full size picture) – are all pupils at Portobello HS. They gave a magnificent performance of music by W.A. Mozart and M. Corrette to a packed auditorium and were a great credit to the school. The entire event was filmed and we should be able to view this on a podcast soon.
