In the spirit of friendship and fun for which our festival is famous, YOU are invited to join in a concert of music by four well known arrangers and composers who will each rehearse and then lead the performance of their own piece. To ensure maximum satisfaction, pieces will include parts for all levels of experience.
Rachel Hair will lead music from ‘Mannin Aboo!’ with the help of her ensemble Claasagh from the Isle of Man.
Corrina Hewat, along with the BMus and Masters lever harp students from RCS, will lead ‘Alan Friendly’ a piece written by Corrina and arranged specially for this performance.
Susan Syverson from Sweden will lead “Strengaspel” with her harp, fiddle and cello ensemble from the Music School of Kristianstad.
Isobel Mieras, with the orchestra of the Edinburgh Branch of the Clarsach Society, na Clarsairean will direct us in a movement from her new ‘St Kilda’ suite.
