The Maiden Stone - a new opera by Joe Stollery

February 2014

Joe Stollery is in the middle of composing an opera to be performed on Bennachie, a hill in Aberdeenshire, on September 5th and 6th, 2014. It’s a small scale affair with two singers, six players along with schoolchildren from 5 local schools who will not only take part in it, but will also create soundscapes and improvisations which will feature during the performance.

OK – so we need to raise £4000 to put it on so we’ve set up a crowdfunding website where people can support the project with a little bit of dosh. If you’ve got some spare change, please have a look at:

where there is more detail about the opera.

Many thanks on Joe’s behalf and please forward this to anyone you know who might be interested
