The event will raise funds for the incredible children’s charity, Big Noise Douglas. This charity – set up in Dundee by Optimistic Sound and Sistema Scotland – aims to improve the lives of young people living in deprived areas through the art of music.
The concert will also raise funds for Tenovus Medical Research.
With just a few days to go until the big day, concert organisers have revealed that the evening’s entertainment will now open with an extra special performance by over 30 children from Big Noise Douglas (pictured in the Instagram shot above).
Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti is preparing to perform with Dundee Symphony Orchestra at a special concert on Wednesday 19th at Caird Hall.

When asked about her upcoming Dundee performance, Benedetti said:
I am delighted to be a part of the birthday celebrations of the Dundee Symphony Orchestra. 125 years is a great achievement. It is also wonderful to give a platform to some of the children from Big Noise Douglas who work so hard and grow in confidence through their engagement with the programme.
