Musselburgh’s Brunton Theatre to Host Summer Orchestral Concerts and Recitals

As part of its wide range of arts experiences on offer, Musselburgh’s Brunton Theatre is able to present a programme of orchestral concerts and lunchtime recitals made possible thanks to support from Creative Scotland.

At the lunchtime classical concert series, audiences can enjoy lunch of soup and a sandwich at noon in the upstairs bar, before an hour long recital in the relaxed setting of Venue 2 where the programme includes music by Brahms, Ravel and Schumann.

Edinburgh’s St Mary’s Music School has been in the news recently because of the recent confirmation that the old Royal High on Calton Hill will be its new home. Over the years, the school has produced some of the UK’s finest musicians and this concert featuring them offers an opportunity to hear some of the current crop of students in various ensembles before they go out to the wider world of conservatoires.

The Brunton’s Venue 1 is proving to be a superb concert hall, from which to enjoy orchestral concerts and it is here that the Scottish Chamber Orchestra (SCO) will deliver a concert on Saturday 23rd July with Philip Higham on cello and conducted by Maxim Emelyanychev, whose performances with the SCO have developed a reputation for amazing freshness and energy. The concert will feature Mozart’s Symphony in D K97; Haydn’s Cello Concerto in C and Haydn’s Symphony No 104 in D ‘London’.
