Nicola Sturgeon, the Deputy First Minister, and Culture Secretary Fiona Hyslop will announce investment for the Big Noise orchestra in Glasgow's Govanhill area today.
Since the Big Noise charity began in Scotland in 2008, children from Raploch in Stirling have benefited from classical music tuition based on a Venezuelan model. Backed by patron Nicola Benedetti, the Big Noise was given nationwide attention earlier this year when it performed with Gustavo Dudamel and the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra at the start of the cultural Olympic celebrations.
