Since 2000 Music in Lanark has been bringing exceptional talent to the people of Clydesdale. From September through to March of the following year we present concerts showcasing a wide range of musical styles, from classical chamber music, opera and jazz to traditional Scottish. We also provide a regular platform for young musicians to perform at the beginning of each concert, thus enabling talent to flourish. Our base is The Institute at New Lanark, a historic building in the World Heritage Site village. Concerts are also held at other venues appropriate to the music, in and around Lanark.
