About this Event

Artist Bios

Emma Donald (violin):

From the Highlands of Scotland, Emma has been playing the violin since the age of 8. Growing up, she enjoyed learning both classical and traditional Scottish music, and has strived to keep both passions running simultaneously. She has a first class honours degree in music from the University of Edinburgh, where she was leader of the three main student orchestras. Emma is a founding member of the Fyrish String Quartet, the Hans Gal Trio, and the neo-trad fiddle and clarsach duo, Turadh. She has worked with Scottish Ballet, and with up and coming opera group, Magnetic Opera, where she was the soloist for their production of Menotti’s The Medium in London.

Ailsa Aitkenhead (piano):

Ailsa Aitkenhead has just finished a year-long placement in the Edinburgh University music department under the graduate studio accompanist scheme. She has recently graduated with distinction from the Masters in Piano Accompaniment course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where she has been highly commended in her final year recital, awarded the Alex Menzies Award for an Outstanding Accompanist and nominated to compete for the prestigious Gerald Moore Award. She previously studied at the University of Edinburgh graduating with a BMus Degree in 2013.

Ailsa started learning piano under the tutelage of Simon Coverdale, and now studies with the acclaimed Scott Mitchell. She has worked with a huge variety of musicians, including singers, string players, brass, woodwind, choirs and musical theatre. Highlights have been her close relationship with the Greyfriars kirk and the lunchtime recital series as a regular performer; performing and rehearsing with Les Sirènes, the 2012 winners of BBC choir of the year; and her experience as the principal accompanist for the students of Edinburgh University.
