A celebratory gala concert with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland in Glasgow, and the Universität der Künste in Berlin. 

Through a live link, audiences in George Square Glasgow and on the European Mile in Berlin can experience the excitement and atmosphere of the concerts in both cities on the stage and big screen.

The popular concert programme features famous operatic tunes and melodies culminating in a mass singalong of much loved songs from Scotland and Germany.  Audience participation is essential!

The concert is presented by Jamie MacDougall and RCS drama student Rebecca Wilkie and features performances from the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland’s Symphony Orchestra, tenor David Lynne, soprano Emma Mockett, mezzo-soprano Rebecca Afonwy-Jones and baritone Mark Nathan as well as Glasgow-based folk band Eriska. The soloists are alumni and students of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland which is consistently recognised as one of the world’s top 10 performing arts education institutions (QS World Rankings 2016-18).

This promises to be a spectacular evening capturing the energy of the young soloists, singers and orchestras and celebrating the ideals of European friendship and of an open, fluent European identity.
