What is Scottish Ensemble’s Musical Book Club?

Through our Musical Book Club, we want to offer a relaxed environment to bring people together, discuss powerful works of music, and recapture some of the post-concert spirit we might otherwise enjoy over drinks after a performance!

Please note, you don’t need to have any existing technical musical knowledge to join in – this is all about sharing passion and interest!

You’re welcome to join the discussion, share thoughts and questions, or simply listen along at home.

An Evening with Sally Beamish

Sally Beamish OBE is of the UK’s foremost living composers, as well as an active violist and pianist. Her work encompasses a range of styles and traditions and is known for its close relationship with Scottish traditional music and jazz music.

Joined by a Scottish Ensemble musician, Sally will explore her compositional process and influences through a selection of her own works and the works that inspired them.

How Can I Join In?

The Book Club will be hosted through the free video conferencing software Zoom. If you would like any assistance downloading or configuring Zoom, just let us know.

A playlist containing recordings to be discussed, along with some questions and thoughts from Tom, will be shared with participants around one week before the session.

Tickets for this event cost £5 (plus online booking fee).
