Saturday 2nd November: North American Guitar Trio
The Spire concert series continues its Autumn 2019 Saturday lunchtime series with the North American Guitar Trio - a fresh ensemble made from some of the most exciting emerging classical guitarists across North America. Members David Steinhardt (California), Tim Beattie (Toronto), and Evan Dim (Niagara) all recently started their studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland under the tutelage of Allan Neave and Matthew McAllister.

Saturday 9th November: Ian Watt Classical Guitarist
Classical guitarist Ian Watt plays music by Milan, Rodrigo, McGuire, Turina and Albeniz in the Spire concert series. One of our most talented players, Ian's performance will be further enhanced by the wonderful acoustic in the church.

Saturday 16th November: Ethelinda - extracts from a forgotten opera
The opera Ethelinda was written by Mildred Jessup (née Bowes Lyon) and first performed in Florence in 1894 to rapturous applause. The appreciative audience was stunned to discover it had been written by a woman in her twenties. Sadly Mildred did not live beyond the age of 28, and never returned to her home at Glamis Castle, or knew she was the great-aunt of our Queen.
Extracts will be performed today by soprano Catriona Clark, tenor Matthew Kimble, baritones Francis Church and Douglas Nairne, accompanied by Derek Clark. An introduction will be given by Dr Tommy Fowler, who re-discovered the piano score, and a narration linking the extracts will be given by Daisy Henderson of Classical Musicians Scotland. As in all good operas, there's a heroine, a hero, a man betrayed and a baddie!

Saturday 7th December: Russkaya Cappella
Scotland's Russian choir will complete the Autumnn Spire concert series with their own inimitable style.

Additional Dates: 19 October 2019, 02 November 2019, 09 November 2019, 16 November 2019, 07 December 2019
