Welcome

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.

Latest News

The music world is still in the midst of very difficult times due to the ongoing crisis caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. Live musical performances are currently not permitted and it’s hard to know when Music in Lanark’s concert programme will be back up and running.

I took over from Jamie Hill as the new Chair of Music in Lanark back in the spring, and the moment I put the finishing touches to the 2020/2021 concert programme the whole world of live music and concerts as we know it came to an abrupt halt. I have postponed the two concerts that were scheduled for the end of this year and still hope that we may be able to enjoy the ones planned for next year. However, in the meantime, I am hoping to bring you a taste of the fantastic artists and repertoire that we have in store via Music in Lanark’s Facebook page and via some live streamed events.

International pianist Leon McCawley [pictured below] was due to kick off our new season on 1st October 2020 with a programme of music by Viennese composers – including one of Beethoven’s late sonatas to commemorate the 250th anniversary of his birth. Sadly we’ve had to postpone Leon’s visit until next November but in the meantime I can invite you all to enjoy a tantalizing taste of what awaits us in New Lanark next year by listening in to a free live streaming of Leon’s recital at the Wigmore Hall on Saturday 10th October at 7.30pm.

Please check back for updates on the live concert situation and in the meantime I share with you the best of music online.

Stay well and keep safe.
