Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


5 Day Course (Saturday to Wednesday)

Students are invited to practise, rehearse and perform in the Festival’s Wednesday afternoon concert. We will join members of na Clàrsairean, the orchestra of the Edinburgh Branch of The Clarsach Society, to  play a  new suite, Shapes and Shadows, specially composed by Isobel Mieras in collaboration with Rhona Smith of Drake Music Scotland, who will be the soloist at the performance. The music, which will have parts for all abilities will be sent out in advance. Join us to discover the fun and satisfaction of playing in an ensemble while rehearsing and refining music to performance level.

Through expertise in technology, Drake Music, Scotland enables disabled musicians to independently compose and perform music
