About this event

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra's Principal Cellist, Philip Higham, will be live at Craigmillar Now, playing three performances in response to 'Daily Myths' a new exhibition by the Craigmillar-based, Syrian artist Nihad Al Turk.

These intimate performances have been scheduled to coincide with the Craigmillar and Niddrie Community Festival and mark the launch of an exciting 5 year-long collaboration between the SCO and Craigmillar Now.

About Philip Higham:

Born in Edinburgh, Philip studied with Ruth Beauchamp at St Mary's Music School and subsequently at the RNCM with Emma Ferrand and Ralph Kirshbaum. He also enjoyed mentoring from Steven Isserlis. In 2008 he became the first UK cellist to win 1st Prize in the Bach Leipzig competition, and followed it with major prizes in 2009 Lutoslawski Competition, and the 2010 Grand Prix Emmanuel Feuermann in Berlin. He was selected for representation by Young Classical Artist Trust between 2009 and 2014.

He has appeared as soloist with the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Hallé Orchestra (broadcast by BBC Radio 3), the Royal Northern Sinfonia and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. He has given recitals at the Wigmore Hall, Brighton Festival and Lichfield Festival, and further afield in Germany, Istanbul and Washington DC. In 2014 he performed the complete Bach Suites in Tokyo at the Musashino Cultural Foundation, and again at Wigmore Hall in 2017.

About Daily Myths:

Nihad al Turk has been in residence at Craigmillar Now since November 2020. During this time, he has produced a series of captivating, large scale paintings depicting haunting figures and imaginary creatures, inspired by Kurdish myths and the Christian iconography of the former church space where they were made.

Daily Myths will be exhibited at Craigmillar Now from the 14th August until the 27th September. For more information please visit Craigmillar Now's website www.craigmillarnow.com
