Following the success of the Fife schools composition project piloted by Kirkcaldy Orchestral Society in 2014-15 we decided to continue the project in the current school session. John Gourlay, KOS member and composer worked with seven pupil composers from Inverkeithing, Balwearie and Auchmuty High Schools. The pupil composers were guided through music composition as part of their Advanced Higher Music folio.
The culmination of the project was a live performance of all seven pieces by members of Kirkcaldy Orchestral Society on Monday 21 March 2016 at Inverkeithing High School. Family and friends were present for these world premieres.
