National Youth Work Awards 2019

On March 13th, four CoEMS seniors provided the musical entertainment for the 2019 National Youth Work Awards at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Glasgow. 

Organised annually by YouthLink Scotland, the awards celebrate the outstanding contribution of youth workers from a whole variety of organisations across the country.

Singer-songwriter Bonnie Higgs kicked off proceedings performing two of her own songs, followed by vocalist Chiara Lordi, singing one of her own songs and accompanying herself on the piano. Later on, Jazz whizz Ethan Gillespie and sax star Leon Thomson brought the musical part of the evening to a smooth close.
