Over £900 was raised through donations during a fundraising day at Inverness Cathedral when 45 wind, brass and percussion players staged an open door rehearsal followed by an informal concert .
MFR’s Cash 4 Kids and the Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Appeal will split the money.
Billed as Symphonic Winds, the musicians – led – by Kieran Forsyth – are part of the Cash 4 Kids’ Symphony Orchestra.
Paul Wilson, who established the orchestra in 2018, said: “The lockdown restrictions were easing and we decided to organize the day to bring musicians together for the first time in two years and raise funds.
People came from all over – Thurso, Elgin, Fort William and Inverness.
The concert inspired by the 2019 movies is now scheduled to have a sequel on October 1 with the orchestra’s Back to the Movies – Part Two!
