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.
Each concert is moderately priced (with big discounts if you buy a Series Ticket: all 9 concerts for just £75!), and tickets for young people of school age are only £1. We aim to work closely with local schools to encourage musical appreciation and to give budding musicians a chance to meet professionals.
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.
THE ART OF JAZZ PIANO – improvisation through the great American Songbook and beyond.
Saturday 12th December at 7.45 pm
The Mill Cafeteria, New Lanark
Crazy name, crazy guy! A couple phoned from Hampshire hoping to get to this gig and said that it was worth travelling the globe to hear him! A fabled swing pianist, equally virtuosic in jazz and classical traditions, composer, arranger and jazz educator whose chief ambition is “to see people smiling and having fun!” – that’s MUSIC in LANARK!!
A great pre-Christmas night out featuring the music of Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, George Gershwin and more…
Why not make a night of it and book now for a highly-praised pre concert dinner at New Lanark Mill Hotel (01555 667200)?
