About our 2016 programme, Music Director Jenny Sumerling says
“Posterity has a habit of elevating the obscure and neglecting the famous. Thus it is that Cherubini, hailed by Beethoven as ‘the greatest living composer’, is today often forgotten; ‘If I were to write a Requiem, Cherubini’s would be my only model’, Beethoven continued and the work was performed at his funeral in 1827. Schumann’s opinion was that it was ‘without equal in the world’. Berlioz considered that ‘the decrescendo in the Agnus Dei surpasses everything that has ever been written of the kind’. Cherubini was anxious to reflect the spirit as well as the meaning of the text and so, to avoid any unwelcome associations with opera, he decided to dispense altogether with soloists. It is a work of remarkable intensity, full of attractive choral and orchestral writing.”

And Stuart Mitchell is looking forward to the Edinburgh Theatre Arts production of ENRON at St Ninian’s Church Hall.
‘We are on the side of Angels’ says Enron’s Jeff Skilling, the leading player in one of the most infamous financial scandals in corporate history. Lucy Prebble transforms this true story into an engaging theatrical and multimedia spectacle. Mixing classical tragedy with savage comedy, political satire with modern morality, the play unveils a narrative of power, greed and loss which reflects the culture of the 1990s and casts a revealing light on the flawed people and conditions which allow huge financial deception to flourish. Witness this unique production in the special, intimate atmosphere of St Ninian’s Hall.Monday 8th August to Saturday 20th August
7:30pm plus 2:30pm matinee on Saturdays
