Red Note Ensemble

Red Note Ensemble was founded in 2008 by Scottish cellist Robert Irvine,
and is directed by John Harris (Chief Executive and Artistic Co-Director)
and Robert Irvine (Artistic Co-Director). The Ensemble performs the
established classics of contemporary music; commissions new music;
develops the work of new and emerging composers from around the
world; and finds new spaces and new ways of performing contemporary
music to attract new audiences. Red Note’s performing ensemble is
drawn from the deep talent pool of Scottish new music expertise, and
counts amongst its players some of the very finest performers working in
the UK today. Red Note undertakes a Spring and Autumn season each
year comprising tours, site-specific work and collaborations with other
companies within Scotland, around the UK and abroad, and runs regular
new music series showcasing the work of new composers (Noisy Nights
and Noisy Words). It is also extensively involved in the education sector,
particularly at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow, and the
sound Festival in Aberdeen. The company is now also developing
collaborations and new work with companies abroad. Red Note is
Associate Contemporary Ensemble at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
in Glasgow, an Associate Company of the Traverse Theatre Edinburgh,
and Associate Ensemble of the sound Festival Aberdeen.
