Attendance at Memorial Concert in Ariccia April 2014
In April 2014 four members from Prestwick attended a memorial concert for the late President of the Twinning Association in Ariccia, Marie-Paule Starquit. The concert was given by 29 members of the Ayrshire Fiddle Orchestra to a packed hall in the Chigi Palace. They also gave a concert in a local school and had a great reception form the students there. Our thanks go to the AFO for playing and for being such good ambassadors for Scotland.
