Description

Pre-Gala Supper

The final Saturday of the Balerno Music Festival is special, but it can be made even more special by enjoying a Pre-Gala Supper supplied by MacKenzies with complimentary wine or soft drinks. Furthermore, everyone purchasing a Pre-Gala Supper and Gala Concert ticket will have a reserved seat in the central part of the Church.

Gala Concert - Jessica Leary and Friends

The Balerno Music Festival is pleased to present the return of Jessica Leary (Soprano) to our stage with some ‘different’ friends, in the form of the ‘Empyrean Ensemble’. The trio consists of Jessica (Soprano), Jean Johnson (Clarinet) and Ailsa Aitkenhead (Piano) and they regularly perform in the UK and abroad.

Individually, they have performed with Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Opera and at festivals including BBC Proms, St Magnus Festival and Edinburgh International Festival.

We are delighted that they will be performing here in Balerno and entertaining us with a varied programme of solos, trios and duets which will transport you from the opera house to the beautiful pastoral scenes portrayed by Schubert’s Shepherd on the Rock, from the parade ground of Vaughan Williams’ music to ‘Walking the dog’ with Gershwin and Gilbert and Sullivan and Rogers and Hammerstein!

This is an evening not to be missed. You are guaranteed to be enthralled and amazed at the artistry and beauty of their performance.

Reception

Everyone is invited to the complimentary Festival Reception after the end of the Gala Concert with the opportunity to meet the soloists and share reflections on the whole Festival.
