What’s on

Music for a While

“A musical delight for voice and keyboard” is on offer at Holy Trinity Church, Stirling at 7.00pm on Saturday 30 September.

Ulrike Wutscher (mezzo-soprano), accompanied by Alistair Warwick on harpsichord and organ, sings settings by Monteverdi, Schütz and Purcell and three operatic arias by Handel. Most of these are either well-known or ought to be! This georgeous programme is even free, though donations are welcome.

Variation 1

An enjoyable programme of light, classical music at the Old Kirk, Kirkcaldy, at 7.30pm on Tuesday 3 October. Tickets available from Ellen Patrick, other KOS members or via the email address on the flyer linked to the image.

Music on Sundays

The Dunfermline Arts Guild 2017–18 programme of chamber music concerts, which takes place at Carnegie on Sunday evenings from October through to March, displays its usual wealth of musical talent, in a variety of ensembles and styles ranging from solo piano to wind quintet. The linked brochure contains lots of information about the artists and their music, as well as details about tickets – including a six-for-the-price-of-four season ticket offer, which is great value at just £40.

The “Music on Sundays” series kicks off on 8 October 2017 at 7.30pm in the Carnegie Hall Studio, with a programme of songs and guitar solos by Alison McNeill and Sasha Savaloni that will include a newly commissioned work from composer Stuart MacRae on the theme of “Pilgrimage”.

Ask Jean Kennedy or Martin Tarr for a personal recommendation – you can’t beat live music!

Queensferry Festival

Queensferry Music Society invite you to their mini folk festival on Saturday 30 September from 4:00pm–8:00pm at St Margaret’s Lodge, 3 Stoneycroft Road, South Queensferry EH30 9HX (behind the bowling club). “A relaxed, informal vibe where people can talk as well as listen.”

Four top-class professional acts – Jamie Laval, U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion, who captivates his audiences with passionate, virtuosic performances and engaging stories; Tunna, who perform an exciting mix of original and traditional tunes taking their audience across the genres; and Nick Jenkins, who plays intricate, fast, folk music on the fiddle – plus groups from local high schools.

From 1.30pm–3.30pm, there’s also a unique opportunity for young (S1-S6) strings or wind players to try their hand at traditional music in the workshop led by June Nelson of Scottish Fiddle Orchestra. Students learn a tune on the day, then play it at the event later!

G&S Jambouree

No, it’s not a mis-spelling … it’s a message from Alison Pendlowski to tell us that former Queen Anne Singers member Teenah Bee will be the Plaintiff in a version of Trial by Jury with a difference in St Leonard’s-in-the-Fields Church, Perth, at 7.00pm on Sunday 10 September. Favourite excerpts from other Gilbert and Sullivan operettas for the first half; Trial after the interval. The performance will be accompanied on two pianos played by Edna Auld, the founder of the Jambouree Cabaret Singers, and by Lorne Heriot-Maitland, with the choruses conducted by Rona Mackenzie.

If you are lucky enough to be under 25, there is also an opportunity to join the chorus! The rest of us will just have to enjoy the sight and sound of young people performing our favourite works … it’s a hard life! Click the image for full details.
