Event Details


This concert is the culmination of a fascinating creative project involving Mr McFall’s Chamber, young composers from Auchinleck Academy, dancers and string players, four composers from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the wonderful learning team at the Citizens Theatre. From June onwards, composers James MacMillan and Jennifer Martin have been teaching a group from Auchinleck Academy to write their own music for the Tryst’s artists-in-residence, Mr McFall’s Chamber. Each work is inspired by a moment in the life of Robert Burns and Burns himself will be with us at Cumnock Academy, to share his thoughts on the proceedings, played by the dynamic Scottish actor Martin Docherty. There will be new music for dancers, new music created by young string players and more world premieres than ever before
