More information

Sirocco Winds are a dynamic wind ensemble comprising of Masters graduates of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Although based in Glasgow, its members come from all over the UK and Spain. They were formed in 2012 and are represented by Classical Musicians Scotland. Successes for the group include winning the Governors’ Recital Prize for Chamber Music at the RCS, playing live on Classic FM, BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio Scotland, entertaining guests on the National Trust for Scotland’s cruises in 2017 and 2018, and performing in prestigious music festivals including the St Magnus International Festival, the Cumnock Tryst and Aberdeen International Youth Festival.
The quintet delight in presenting inventive programmes on a theme, which often showcase their own personal arrangements. In this performance they will be taking us on a ‘Transatlantic Journey’ beginning with works by British composers before crossing the water to the New World.
