Scottish musicians collaborate with Ursuline Academy Choir

Scottish musician Calum Martin performed with the Ursuline Academy Choir on Friday, Oct. 4, in the Ursuline Academy Chapel.

Instead of after-school French or Spanish, for one week members of the Ursuline Academy Choir practiced their Lowland Scots and Gaelic Scots with two musicians from Scotland as part of the Scottish Partnership for Arts in Education.

The Scottish Partnership for Arts in Education, or SPAE, provides workshops to area schools on Scottish music and history. Diane McCullough, artistic director for SPAE, said the first full artist residencies began in 2007 with traditional fiddle and that last year was the first time SPAE added Gaelic Scots songs to their workshops.
