Scottish Ensemble musicians are visiting Seil this week marking the start of their 50th anniversary year.

The lunchtime recital on Friday (August 30) at Seil Hall, starting at 1.15pm, is the ensemble’s only visit to the Oban and Netherlorn area for 2019. The year is already packed out with tours to other parts of Scotland, as well as Europe and the Far East.

‘Don’t miss them!’ says Professor Stephen Arnold who is chairman of The Netherlorn Music Scheme.

The recital tomorrow is free and everyone is invited with donations welcome in aid of the scheme that will be offering top classical musicians week-long residencies in islanders’ homes in return for them sharing their skills in the community and putting on a performance at the end of it.

Norwegian violinist Marianne Thorsen will be guest director at the event where the ensemble will be performing one of the most loved chamber music works of all time – Felix Mendelssohn’s Octet in E Flat major, opus 20 (1825).
