The Cumnock Tryst welcomes back Drake Music Scotland for a third time in their ongoing collaboration. The project last year culminated in The Bell Tree, a narrative-based concert exploring aspects of Cumnock history, given by pupils from Hillside School and adults from the Riverside Centre.
This year, we are very much looking forward to joining students of Auchinleck Academy and the strings of Greenmill Primary School, as well as percussionist Colin Currie, to create a four movement ‘symphony’ in which each group will take one movement and create something based around the colours and moods evoked by the music we’re performing at our other concerts during the Tryst Festival.
This work is the outcome of a series of educational workshops led by James MacMillan and Matilda Brown, focusing on composition and invention, enhanced by a beautiful video presentation, which allows the audience to see into the close workings of Drake Music Scotland and their local performers.
