Moniaive’s Cairn Chorus joins forces with Scottish Ensemble to perform the premiere of a brand new song set entitled Cairn Valley Song Cycle.
Commissioned by Moniaive Festival Village as part of their Creative Places Award, seven local and international composers explored their response to the community and landscape of the Cairn Valley.
In their second collaboration commissioned by the Festival, Cairn Chorus (celebrating their 10th anniversary) will join the orchestra of Scottish Ensemble to bring these songs alive, for a one
off concert. The pieces are for voice, with string accompaniment from Scottish Ensemble. Both the Cairn Chorus and Scottish Ensemble will also play alternating 20 minute sets, creating an evening of entertainment from both sides.
