Haddo Arts is ten years old!

TIME FLIES when you are enjoying yourself and it seems like only yesterday when the Haddo Arts Festival launched into action back in October 2011.

Taking place each year at the National Trust property in the heart of rural Aberdeenshire, it’s an event that has drawn audiences from far and wide with its thought-provoking, diverse and engaging programme.

Over the past ten years activities have ranged from tea dancing in the Haddo House library to jazz in the hall and celebrations of great performers like Sir Harry Lauder, plus local celebrity, the inimitable and formidable Ms Myrtle Throgmorton.

Haddo’s historic surroundings have hosted amazingly original artwork, installations and sculptures thanks to Aberdeen Artists Society and Experimental Use of Space and this year the Country Park has yet more visual art surprises in store.

On October 8, Lights on Haddo will feature a light show of past festival highlights projected onto the 18th century building.

However, Haddo is best known for its music. The Choral Society founded by David and June Gordon more than 70 years ago remains a vibrant community resource. Under the baton of Alice Dennis BEM, and more recently Dr Paul Tierney, it has presented some memorable festival concerts.

The unique Song for Haddo project takes this exceptional musical heritage to another generation. Working with McOpera, plus local primary schools and academies across Aberdeenshire, the festival has featured a series of impressive performances involving the participation of hundreds of children from across the region.

So what can we expect from the 10th anniversary festival? Live performances recorded at Haddo this summer range from virtuoso pianist Joanna McGregor, the Bach Players, and a Whistlebinkies gig. These are just a few of the exciting items on the programme which this year will be available online October 9-16.
