Friday 30 September / 5pm
(Approx running time: 1 hour, no interval )
Join us for our annual lively early evening panel discussion. The Guardian music critic and BBC presenter Tom Service will lead a conversation with Sir James MacMillan and composers taking part in this year’s Cumnock Tryst – Scott Lygate, Cecilia McDowall and a young composer from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. This promises to be a fascinating session when composers get together and chat about what inspires them and what they think about writing music in the 21st century.
