AIYF Welcome Ceremony

Aberdeen International Youth Festival kicks off with a bang

On the 27th of July, a couple of members from Youth Media went along to the Music Hall for the welcome ceremony. The welcome ceremony is a huge occasion where all the participants come together to mark the start of AIYF.

Throughout the ceremony, we learn about some of the performers and hear the national anthems of the countries taking part in the festival this year. The ceremony was a brilliant way to get all the countries together and also a great way to get the audience involved.

We got some footage from the ceremony of the flag bearers and the orchestra playing the national anthems, so check it out here!
