 Local young musician winners gave a “superb performance” at the Lochaber Rotary Club’s business lunch meeting on 23 May.

Ailsa Janzen, from Kinlochleven High School, winner of the Rotary Junior Young Musician of the Year, performed pieces from Bach and Dvorak on the violin. The jaunty rendition of Bach’s Gavotte thrilled the audience.

Francesca Rose, from Lochaber High School, winner of the Rotary Senior Young Musician of the Year, played Korngold’s Serenade and Squire’s Tarantella on her viola. Again, the audience was impressed by her very uplifting and professional performance.

Past-President David Thomson, himself a violinist, thanked Ailsa and Francesca on behalf of the Club for the lunchtime entertainment and said “That was a superb performance. The Lochaber Music School does wonderful work with youngsters of all ages” David then presented the musicians with their certificates and added that he was delighted that the Rotary sponsorship had resulted in such “outstanding young musicians”.
