Event Details


Laura Margaret Smith and Geoffrey Tanti : mezzo-soprano and piano duo
Our popular morning concert series, Emerging Artists, continues at the Usher Hall.

Join us to discover some new talent from a range of great young professional musicians at the outset of their careers. The theme running through this year’s programme will be ‘song’. Rising Scottish mezzo star Laura Margaret Smith met Maltese pianist Geoffrey Tanti while studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where they formed a great friendship. Here they perform John Maxwell Geddes commission A Castle Mills Suite, which features on Live Music Now Scotland’s 30th anniversary compilation album, Luminate.

 

Go behind the scenes at the magnificent Usher Hall, and watch the performance onstage, from the vantage point of the stunning Organ Gallery. Then all are invited for coffee upstairs, and a chance to chat with the musicians.

 

Prices:

£3 (on the door), FREE to students/schools.
