From Darkness to Light – Young Artists’ Showcase
Wildings (flute, fiddle, piano)

This year’s popular double bill opens with a young Scottish soprano who is already making waves on the opera and oratorio stage. Emily Mitchell’s programme with pianist Geoffrey Tanti includes the deeply moving song cycle Songs from Above and Below, a reflection on the mining communities of Central Scotland and South Wales, commissioned from the distinguished Scottish composer John McLeod. It concludes with a selection of songs by Richard Strauss. In contrast, the second half features Wildings, a talented trio of traditional musicians from both sides of the Border. Their programme includes another new commission, The Bellany Suite, based on the Scottish artist John Bellany’s work and its links to the sea, written by the musicians themselves.

Tickets £12.00 (concessions £6.00) – unreserved.
