Music In Dollar Concert by Emily Mitchell Vocal Ensemble
Dollar Academy - Gibson Hall

"When the gates of Heaven are thrown open, I’d tears in my eyes. Best of all, Tomas had engaged a wonderful young soprano, Emily Mitchell, for the all important solo part in the last movement. If I say that she reminded me of a young Lucia Popp, I can give no higher praise." wholeelephant.co.uk. Born into a musical family, Scottish soprano Emily Mitchell, was immersed in music from an early age. She began her formal classical training at the RCS in Glasgow under the tutelage of Margaret Aronson. She is a Live Music Now! artist with her accompanist Geoffrey Tanti and is a regular performer with Scottish Opera.

Music In Dollar Concert by Alistair Savage
Dollar Academy - Gibson Hall

Way back in 2004, one of the violin players in the BBC SSO decided that a return to his roots was long overdue. A native of Ardrossan, Alastair Savage had grown up as a folk fiddler, famously winning The Double (both the Ayrshire and National sections of the Land O' Burns Scots' Fiddle Competition) in 1986, before going on to study classical playing at the RSAM in Glasgow and then the RAM in London. Alastair heeded the call of the traditional tunes that had started him off as a musician, and, together with his great friends Euan Drysdale and Iain Crawford, The Alastair Savage Trio was born. As well as playing those written by the fiddle greats of yesteryear, Alastair had been writing his own tunes for years, inspired by various experiences and the land and cityscapes around him. Four albums have been recorded so far, along with many festival appearances. "Hearing the raucous and the wistful tunes of Alastair Savage, I’ve never felt so proud to be Scottish; his music is so invigorating and soulful" – Kate Clarkson.
