LIVE FROM YOUR LIVING ROOM

Although we have been devastated to have to cancel our recent concerts, we very much look forward to welcoming you back in the future! Meanwhile, we have been busy creating special performances for you to tune in to, in the comfort of your own home. Here are some for you to enjoy 🎶

Last month, Scottish percussionist Colin Currie was due to perform Helen Grime's new Percussion Concerto. Although this did not come to pass, Colin kindly filmed this video of him performing a small preview of the work for you all to enjoy 🎶

Sub-Principal Double Bass Adrian Bornet recorded a beautiful rendition of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies' 'Farewell to Stromness' on piano 🎹 (an instrument he hasn't played in about 60 years) - pretty impressive!
