Music Cafe Returns to Glasgow Royal Concert Hall

05/10/2017
Pupils from more than a dozen schools from in and around Glasgow are taking the opportunity of a lifetime to perform concerts at the Royal Concert Hall. Programmed and organised by the individual schools, each Music Café concert will last an hour and is free and un-ticketed. 

The concerts are being held between 1 and 2pm most Wednesdays and Thursdays from 25 October to 14 December. The series of concerts also aims to give the pupils the opportunity to perform outside their schools and in a recognised venue. 

At least 6 of the schools performing this year also took part in 2016. The Music Café events are part of Glasgow Life’s work with local schools, providing cultural opportunities to enhance individual lives and build and strengthen links with young people and their teachers.

Councillor David McDonald, Chair of Glasgow Life and Depute Leader of Glasgow City Council said: “Last year these lunch-time concerts produced some terrific performances so it is great that so many of the schools that took part then have decided to return. They will get a brilliant insight into what life is like on the road for performers and experience of one of Glasgow best loved venues. If you can get along to any of these concerts and support these young musicians you might just enjoy a global superstar of the future.”
As well as the schools performances, Live Music Now will also present two concerts as part of Music Café, with professional musicians Laura Sergeant and Ian Watt appearing on 8th October and Laura Margaret Smith and Geoffrey Tanti performing on 15 October.

All performances in Music Cafe are free and unticketed. To find out more visit www.glasgowconcerthalls.com or call 0141 353 8000
