Event information

Join us for a preview of our next Song for Haddo project with the McOpera Ensemble and baritone Andrew McTaggart, filmed and recorded live in September 2021 at Haddo House.

Written by Peter Kemp, A Place to Play has to date taken 95 local primary school children and their teachers on a fabulous musical journey through Haddo’s childhood memories.

Over the coming months, instrumentalists from the local academies and even more young singers will join the project, culminating in a live performance at the Haddo Arts Festival 2022.
