Still time to enter contest

Secondary schools in Angus still have time to enter their talented young musicians into ScottishPower’s Powerful Performance competition 2012, but they will have to be quick as the October 31 deadline is fast approaching.

Competing schools are in with the chance to perform live at the internationally renowned Celtic Connections festival, which celebrates folk music.

Contestants are competing for the unique opportunity to showcase their talents at the annual event as part of the final Education Concert of the festival in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. They will also be automatically entered into the highly competitive Danny Kyle Open Stage where they will be judged as a regular competitor.

The successful group will also win a Masterclass from one of the acts performing at Celtic Connections in 2012. This will be held in early January 2012 to help the pupils prepare for their performance.
