Suite way to play tribute to the pandas

AN original piece of music inspired by Edinburgh Zoo’s giant pandas is to be given its premiere this weekend.

Panda Suite, written and performed by Scottish composer Eddie McGuire, was created by a partnership of the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and Children’s Classic Concerts. The music celebrates giant pandas Tian Tian and Yang Guang, and their arrival in Scotland from China, in three movements – Pandas Dreaming: Journey to the West, Bonnie Pandas Welcome Here, and a lively and rhythmic Panda Dance.
