The Wind and Brass Ensemble from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland make a welcome return to Bearsden’s Kilmardinny Music Circle concert series with a festival programme of music from Bach to Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky to Dougie Maclean - with a festive theme perfect for advent.
With foyer music, mulled wine and mince pies, this event on Friday, December 5 at 7.30pm at Kilmardinny House is your chance to enjoy a great night out this Christmas.
Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Wind & Brass (including Bells Up! Brass Quintet) is an ensemble comprising senior students of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, under the direction of John Logan and Nigel Boddice and Heather Nicoll. The musicians have already built up considerable experience both as soloists and as orchestral players, working regularly with such organizations as the Royal Scottish National, BBC Scottish Symphony, Scottish Opera and Scottish Chamber Orchestras.
The ensemble’s repertoire is wide ranging, spanning five centuries in a variety of styles from original works for brass, to arrangements of popular classics and jazz. In addition to the ensemble’s work within the Academy, numerous outside engagements have been undertaken, including tours to China, Germany, Denmark, Russia, the Orkney Islands and Faroe Islands. As well as premiering new works, the ensemble is very visible in our communities with performing and coaching our young musicians in regional schools.
