Dates and times

Thursday 2 August 2018
8:00PM - 10:00PM

George Square hosts an exceptional collaboration between internationally renowned visual artist Douglas Gordon and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.  

Douglas Gordon curates a programme that responds to the rich heritage of George Square, as the civic heart of the city and where citizens gather for their collective voice to be heard, to bring a unique element that melds classical and contemporary sounds and voices for one night only.   One of the cornerstones of the programme is a re-working for orchestration of a Mogwai composition entitled Music For A Forgotten Future (The Singing Mountain) which is to be performed live for the first time in George Square, alongside the debut of a specially written piece by Scotland's national makar Jackie Kay.
