Violinist Nicola Benedetti is to perform in a series of concerts with children in an effort to inspire string musicians of the future.
Benedetti, who was awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours, will take time out from her national tour to play with youth orchestras in Glasgow.
Born in West Kilbride, Benedetti first began violin lessons at the age of five and was named BBC's Young Musician of the Year in 2004 at the age of 16.
She is a passionate supporter of music education and has worked with organisations such as Sistema Scotland to help demonstrate the power that music can have in transforming the lives of young people.
The "Benedetti sessions" will take place between March 22 and 24 and will involve concerts, masterclasses and participatory sessions.
The violinist said: "I have wanted to do something like this for years as an extension of my music education work. I'm just delighted to have the support of Glasgow Unesco City of Music, Creative Scotland, the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland (NYOS) and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
"I really hope the weekend will be insightful and enjoyable for the 40 young people and children participating but also for the public who come join in and watch our performances and sessions.
"It will also be great to be back in Scotland, as the weekend falls during my Silver Violin Tour. In the preceding months, I will have been to Scandinavia, Europe, USA and South East Asia, so it will be a relief to be spending such a long time back at home."
Creative Scotland's director of creative development Iain Munro said: "The Benedetti sessions will provide a brilliant opportunity for young musicians to learn from one of the most highly sought-after performers on the world stage.
"Nicola's passion and commitment to enhancing and developing young creative talent is to be applauded and helps ensure Scotland's creative future flourishes. We look forward to experiencing the outcome of the sessions at the public performance."
