SCO Wind Soloists

Please join the world-class Scottish Chamber Orchestra Wind Soloists as they make the Outer Hebrides their home for the week. Wit, ingenuity and entertainment are at the heart of their concerts!

Immerse yourself in the romantic intensity of two star-crossed lovers! Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, with its dramatic scenes and heart-on-sleeve melodies, has a strong claim to being the greatest ballet score ever composed.

After ballet, make way for painting! Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition is an homage to visual arts. Each of the movements evoke a painting of the composer’s late friend, artist Hartmann. Let this imaginative music take you into the world of costume sketches, architectural designs and atmospheric paintings. Join us for an inspiring evening of music!

Tickets available online (above), over the phone on 01851 708 480 and at An Lanntair: Kenneth Street, Stornoway HS2 0HS.

Scogroup002 biography block

"You'd be hard-put finding better wind ensemble playing. That these are colleagues, who sit next to each other day-in, day-out was evident in every sinuous interchange, every synchronised breath, every well-meshed articulation and intuitively balanced chord. As individuals, they play with the forthrightness of orchestral principals; as a group, they share nuances as instinctive chamber musicians". The Guardian
