The 2016 Period A Festival concluded on Friday evening (5th February) with the Young Singers Recital Class: 21 & under and the Young Musician 2016 class. This evening was a fitting climax to end two weeks of music making in different venues in Fife with 4 singers and 6 instrumentalists performing on the Adam Smith Theatre stage to a large, supportive and appreciative audience.
