News & Events

 

Last summer, for the Year of Coasts and Waters 2020, a small group of pupils attending the Uist Primaries Hub at Balivanich worked alongside Nevis Ensemble on the Lochan Sketches project. A series of 10 commissions for composers to write short solo works for specific members of the orchestra.
Composer Angela Salter met virtually with Samanta (Balivanich), Maisie (SUAT) and Zantay (Iochdar) to take inspiration from the country’s coasts and waters.
Their work premiered on BBC Radio Scotland’s Classics Unwrapped programme today and can be heard here https://nevisensemble.org/lochansketches/
Well done to everyone involved and a huge thank you to Sharon for leading this lovely project.
