Dutch street symphony orchestra's surprise for

Deeside Golf Club members

Dutch street symphony orchestra, "The Ricciotti," staged an impromptu 30min concert for a handful of surprised members in Deeside Golf Club today (Sat).
There were 42 of them in the orchestra, including the conductor.
On their way to Newton Dee, they saw the signs for Deeside Golf Club and decided they would like to see a Scottish golf course so they descended on the clubhouse asked Deeside GC Director of Golf Frank Coutts' assistant, Graham Nethercott, if they could go in and play for the members.
The Ricciotti regularly performs spontaneously at the most unexpected moments and locations, anywhere and for everyone ... says the little booklet handed out by a member of the orchestra in the clubhouse.
They are in Aberdeen for the Aberdeen International Youth Festival but will be touring all over Scotland - Perth, Dundee, Stirling, West Linton, Peebles, Galashiels and bowing out at Dunbar on Friday, August 4.
All concerts are free of charge and admission tickets are not usually required.
