Our Patron

Seonaid Aitken

Award winning violinist and sophisticated songstress Seonaid also plays with the orchestra of Scottish Opera, is an accomplished arranger/orhestrator for film/Theatre/TV, presents BBC Scotland's 'Jazz nights at the Quay' and plays with award winning Jazz Group 'The Rose Rooms'

"I’ve had the pleasure of judging the majority of the Glee Show Choir regional finals this year and I’m impressed by how each school has thrown themselves into the Challenge. They’ve embraced each set song and put their own unique
spin on it, and each choir’s personality has shone through its individual song choice. The standard has continued to rise over the years that I’ve been involved as a patron and I’m thrilled that so many schools now have this performance opportunity available to them'
