Chamber and organ music at the Old High Church

One of the conditions of the grants from The Heritage Lottery Fund and The Common Good Fund was to set up recitals and concerts in the Old High following the restoration of the organ.
After a quiet year in 2012 a short programme of recitals has been arranged for this year. It is hoped that over the winter a full programme will be organised and published for 2014.
There are two more recitals, at 12 noon on Satudays:
Saturday 21 September: Merlewood Ensemble
Catherine O’Rourke (flute), Margot Cruft (oboe), Isabel Paterson (violin), Alistair Nelson (viola), Imke Henderson (‘cello),  Gordon Tocher (keyboard)
Having been established for over 10 years, performing successful concerts throughout the Scottish Highlands, from Skye to Banff, the Merlewood Ensemble play  chamber music concerts by classically trained musicians who live in the Highlands. A versatile 6 – piece chamber group, performing a varied repertoire of music for strings, woodwind, voice  and keyboard including solos, duets, trios, quartets and full ensemble.
