Supported by PRS for Music Foundation

We welcome musicians from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for this afternoon concert. The RCS has built up an impressive composition department over recent years under the direction of Gordon McPherson, Ayrshire-based composer Rory Boyle and others. In conjunction with them we have organised a special composition course for six students. The results of this will be on display at this short concert, performed by MusicLab, the contemporary music ensemble of the RCS. Come and have a glimpse at the future of Scottish classical music! 

The RCS (formerly the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama) is the national conservatoire of the performing arts, and has an enviable international reputation. I was a junior student way back in the 1970s and now have an honorary professorial role. Composers thrive there and it will be exciting to hear what their most gifted are writing.
