Many people take the chance to play a musical instrument for granted, but Perth & Kinross Music Foundation’s Musicathon offers hope each year to those for whom it is a pipe dream.
The two-week event gathers youngsters, teachers and parents for a musical celebration, with sponsored performances to raise funds for those less fortunate than themselves. Foundation chairwoman Mhairi Mackinnon said: “The aim is to raise money to help families that cannot afford tuition fees give their children the chance to experience the joy of learning to play.”
