Live streamed concert on 13 March 201723 February 2017
East West will be streamed live across the world next month when the trio perform at Perth Concert Hall at 1pm on 13 March.
The live streaming of our lunchtime concert marks our commitment to reaching audiences in remote and rural places across the country, as well as engaging music-lovers all over the world with high quality performances coming out of Scotland. We’re thrilled to be joining forces with BBC Arts Digital who will be showing the concert on their dedicated arts site as well as on www.hebridesensemble.com.
The audience in Perth will be joined virtually by audiences in Orkney, Skye, Mull and Kinlochbervie who will give their feedback on the streamed concert experience, leading to the development of future digital projects. Members of the public are also encouraged to tune-in to watch the concert live or to view at a later date as the concert will be available on-demand for the next 12 months.
Jennifer Martin, Chief Executive of Hebrides Ensemble said: “We see ourselves as an international Ensemble so it’s wonderful to be able to reach audiences wherever they are. We’re thrilled to be working with Horsecross Arts and BBC Arts Digital on this and hope that, by working in partnership, many more people will be able to experience the joy of live music and hear our fantastic musicians in action.”
Will Conway, Artistic Director and cellist for Hebrides Ensemble said: “As a musician, there’s nothing more exciting than connecting with an audience in a live performance. Knowing that people in the farthest reaches of Scotland, and indeed all over the world, will be watching makes this experience all the more rewarding.”
