Music REVIEW: Scottish Ensemble: Concerts for a Summer's Night - ★★★★

A musical celebration of the summer solstice.

The chink of ice in your drink, the hues of a long Scottish Summer evening and the atmosphere of an array of unique, light-filled venues can only mean one thing – that Scottish Ensemble’s Concerts for a Summer s Night series is back. Premiering last season to sold-out venues, this immediately popular series returns in 2023 – a counterpart to their other seasonal treat, Concerts by Candlelight. Expect a musical journey that takes in the well-loved (Debussy’s serene Claire de Lune) and the less expected (including music from Jazz legend Chick Corea), introductions from the stage, a complimentary welcome drink on arrival and a chance to chat to musicians afterwards.

A perfect way to celebrate summer.



Thursday 22nd June - National Museum of Scotland


Stewart - ★★★★

"A delightful evening's musical journey from the supremely talented Scottish Ensemble lead by artistic director Jonathan Morton. With a bit of a French twist the music includes some well chosen pieces that truly show the skills of the ensemble.

This is the first classical music concert for me so wasn't too sure how I would take with it but it was wonderful. The epic surroundings of the main hall of the National Museum certainly do help and gives an extra resonance to the beautiful music.

There's a good mix of classics you'll know - Claude Debussy's Clair de Lune and plenty of new surprises along the way. Lovely start to the summer!"


Make sure you have booked in for the latest DRAMA CLASSES at Mix Up Theatre throughout Scotland :)
