Scottish Ensemble Countdown London 2012We’re back out on the road this weekend performing at Christ Church, Cockermouth on Saturday 3 March and Hull City Hall on Sunday 4 March. We’ll bejoining music groups all over the country giving performances as part of Music Nation – a weekend of events devised and led by the BBC to begin the countdown to the London 2012 Festival . Continuing our run of collaborations with fantastic soloists, we’ll be joined by superstar trumpeter Alison Balsom for these concerts giving performances of Seraph, the trumpet concerto written for Alison by James MacMillan co-commissioned by the Ensemble and Perth Concert Hall.  Full details of the concerts, and how to book tickets, can be found on our forthcoming concerts page.
