Edinburgh Competition Festival
On Friday 15th March, three ensembles represented the Edinburgh Academy in the Edinburgh Competition Festival. Their competition was an accomplished String quartet comprising of students from ESMS and George Heriot’s school.
All three Edinburgh Academy ensembles were awarded an ‘EXCELLENT’ mark and the clarinet ensemble won the class over all with our trio awarded a well-deserved Second.

‘this was my first time playing chamber music and I loved being part of a team to make the music work. It’s really opened my ears to how important everyone’s individual line is.’
