Websales are now closed for this event.  Tickets will be available topurchase at the door of the venue.

An evening of music to celebrate the long evenings of a Scottish summer. Mirroring Scottish Ensemble’s ever-popular Concerts by Candlelight, this first of 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, Vask’s shimmering Musica Serena and Dvorak’s American Quartet, evoking expansive, wide open vistas.

To take advantage of that evening sun, we’re setting this concert within the spectacular light-filled atrium of the Barras Art and Design. 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.
