Nevis Ensemble

The Nevis Ensemble is different. There’s nothing else quite like it in Scotland. Its vision is ‘music for everyone, everywhere’!

The Full-scale, 40-piece orchestral performances of the best, most diverse music you can imagine: popping up and surprising commuters first thing in the morning; entertaining residents in oft-forgotten parts of the city; guerrilla-style appearances in swimming pools; generating huge public audiences in public spaces.

As part of Burns & Beyond with Johnnie Walker, Nevis Ensemble will undertake a ‘Tour of Edinburgh’ in 48hrs on 25th & 26th January, visiting a variety of public spaces and buildings along with special performances for schools, community groups and a unique performance at Edinburgh Prison before heading west to Glasgow.
