Nevis Ensemble is a brand new Street Orchestra for Scotland, bringing 70 performances to communities across the country during Glasgow 2018.

We will take our energetic 40-piece orchestra, pop up and surprise commuters first thing in the morning, make guerrilla-style appearances in swimming pools, and even perform at the summit of Ben Nevis.

With the theme of Movement, and conducted by Holly Mathieson and Jon Hargreaves, the orchestra will draw musicians from Scotland, London, Amsterdam and Berlin, performing everything from Rachmaninov, to Radiohead, a few Reels thrown in, and a brand new commission from award-winning composer Matthew Grouse.

Today's appearances:

  • Dunbar Battery, Dunbar Harbour, East Lothian, 11am - 12pm
    An outdoor performance in the wonderful new amphitheatre space at Dunbar Battery with wonderful views over the Forth to Bass Rock and beyond.

  • Port Seaton Resource Centre, South Seton Park, Port Seton, East Lothian, 1pm - 1:40pm
    A relaxed performance for the whole community in this wonderful centre for adults with learning disabilities.

  • West Linton Village Green, West Linton, 5pm - 6pm
    A performance for the whole community in the picturesque Borders village of West Linton. Bring the whole family (including pets!) down to the Village Green.
