Summer Concert 2021

Summer Concert 2021

Featuring the premiere of 'Theory of the Earth' by Jay Capperauld, the first of The Seven Hills Project commissions.


This summer our concert promises to be a wonderful mix. The first half features a hint of Eastern promise with pieces from Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky and the second is dedicated to the very first of the new commissions which form part of The Seven Hills Project. 'Theory of the Earth' has been composed by Jay Capperauld and takes its inspiration from Edinburgh's most iconic hill, Arthur's Seat. 

Join us as the whole school performs in a variety of venues to bring this very special event to your doors. 

The concert is free to attend and will take place on Webinarjam.
