Do you remember when the rain came? is part of SCO New Stories, that supports three women composers to bridge the gap between study and the profession by providing them with mentorship.
Three exciting new Scottish voices. Three vivid new works of musical storytelling. Electra Perivolaris, Gillian Walker and Georgina MacDonell Finlayson have each written a brand new work for the SCO’s musicians, inspired by the traditional Scottish art of storytelling, and receiving their world premiere performances online to coincide with Scotland’s Year of Stories.
The three exceptional young women composers have worked closely with the SCO’s Associate Composer Anna Clyne in writing these dramatic new pieces as part of the Orchestra’s New Stories project, creating tales that draw on their own lives and experiences in collaboration with writer and storyteller Janis Mackay.
Three compelling new voices, and three compelling approaches to stories in music: be among the first to experience these new sounds and ideas.
