Arktis Arktis!


A hearty Cumnock welcome to the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, their inspirational animateur Paul Rissmann and the brilliant Swedish composer Karin Rehnqvist. Lots of local secondary students have been prepared in the compositional ideas of modern music for what promises to be a spectacular and inspiring event.
— James MacMillan

The SCO, presented by international educationalist Paul Rissmann, aim to thrill with this captivating performance of Karin Rehnqvist’s evocative orchestral piece Arktis, Arktis!, complemented by the stunning series of Arctic photographic images – by photographer Hans Strand – which inspired the original piece.

The audience will be guided through this colourful work with an engaging visual presentation by Paul Rissmann and interviews with the composer Karin Rehnqvist, who together will give unique insights into the music.

Tickets are free, and available on a first come first served basis on the door.

The SCO would like to thank The Radcliffe Trust, The Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust, Gordon Fraser Charitable Trust, The Margaret Murdoch Charitable Trust, The Nancie Massey Charitable Trust and The N Smith Charitable Settlement for their generous grants towards this project.
