Our first ever Patron’s Concert was one of the great highlights of 2018/19. We are delighted that our Patron, Gina McCormack, will present another Young Musicians’ Showcase this season, for which she will again hand-pick some of the finest young musicians from Scotland’s excellent national conservatoire. Already lined up is a string quartet from the Broen Ensemble led by Michelle Dierx, who made such an impact as a soloist in last season’s showcase.

Gina McCormack is one of the UK’s leading violinists. Since May 2019, she has been First Violin with the world-renowned Brodsky Quartet and is also a highly respected teacher, holding positions at both the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the Royal Northern College of Music. With Gina will be her regular duo partner, Nigel Clayton who, in addition to his career as soloist, accompanist and chamber musician, is Professor of Piano at the Royal College of Music and Visiting Professor at the North East of Scotland Music School.
