On Saturday I was lucky enough to attend a musical workshop for the Edinburgh Fireworks Concert. Before looking at all the fireworks lined up on the Castle ramparts we joined a couple of musicians in a workshop designed to explain a little about the music for Sunday nights fireworks concert.
In a small room within the castle walls we played various instruments that will be used in the concert and learnt about the various composers and music pieces that will combine to make this years event hopefully the best yet.
It was very interesting to hear how the music is chosen and then combined with the many thousands of fireworks to create a wonderful show that will light the sky over Edinburgh tonight (Sunday). Everyone, young and old enjoyed the music workshop, I think it would be very popular if it ran throughout the year at the castle.
