City Residencies

Aberdeen 21 - 24 April 2014   Perth 26 - 29 April 2014

The Scottish Ensemble returns to Aberdeen and Perth in April 2014 for its second set of residencies in the cities - each one specifically crafted in response to local needs in collaboration with community partners. 

Over four days in each city SE will be involved in an eclectic range of events including: masterclasses and workshops; coaching sessions; free community performances; a piano promenade with pianist Alasdair Beatson; SE Sessions, and participatory events including a tea dance. Both residencies culminate with a main-season evening concert.
