The Nevis Ensemble | 27 Aug

Tuesday 27 August 2019
8:30 pm - 9:15 pm

A slightly crazy late addition to our programming – 

A short late evening outdoor concert on the rooftop of the Fàs building with stunning views across the Sound of Sleat.

Conducted by Artistic Directors Holly Mathieson and Jon Hargreaves the 45 strong Nevis Ensemble is touring the Hebrides to give 35 concerts in public spaces and community venues.
Expect works tajen from the earliest written down music by Hildegard of Bingen (born 1098) to the present day via Handel, Mozart, Debussy, Lutoslawski, James MacMillan and Shiori Usui, as well as pop music by A-Ha and Toto, and arrangements of Scottish ceilidh tunes and Gaelic songs. There is even some Shirley Bassey for those who feel like testing out their lung power.

Free entry – come prepared for the weather! (If necessary we will move inside)

No booking need just come along
