Thank you to everyone who came to hear us perform Mahler’s Ninth Symphony in September. The tour included our debut in Perth Concert Hall as well as return visits to Inverness Cathedral, Nairn Community & Arts Centre and Ardross Community Hall. The response from audiences and reviewers was very warm indeed and included a four-star review from Michael Tumelty at The Herald.
“Scotland’s best-kept musical secret” Michael Tumelty, The Herald Scotland, 27th September 2016
“A performance full of passion and colour” Margaret Chrystall, Inverness Courier, 29th September 2016
Our next concerts, which will be the final performances in the long-running Mahler in Miniature series, will take place in the first half of 2017 and will feature Mahler’s Tenth Symphony in a new chamber version by Michelle Castelletti. Dates and venues will be announced here on our website in due course.
Following our crowdfunding campaign in May and June 2016 we are delighted to say we raised a total of over £2150 towards the final two sets of concerts in our Mahler in Miniature series. We raised just over £1500 on our JustGiving page and the final £650 was raised through offline donations and Gift Aid. We are hugely grateful to everyone who donated or helped to spread the word about our campaign: you are the reason we can continue with our concerts.
