Concerts for a Summer’s Night


Mirroring our ever-popular Concerts by Candlelight, this first in a new annual series of events will take you on an atmospheric journey through an eclectic mix of musical styles, including Mozart’s scampering, energetic Magic Flute Overture, Purcell’s hypnotic Fantasia and Dvorak’s American Quartet, evoking expansive, wide open vistas.

To take advantage of that evening sun, we’re setting these concerts in an array of light-filled settings, ranging from spectacular atriums to a Byre in the Perthshire countryside. We invite you to grab a drink (the first is on us!), settle in, and enjoy an evening of superb music in the company of Scottish Ensemble.

Tonight’s concert in Glasgow is now off-sale online but tickets will be available on the door.
