Under the direction of Sir James MacMillan the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra will perform two concerts with around 350 local people, showcasing the new music our community groups have written themselves under the guidance of our expert workshop leaders. The Cumnock Tryst has also commissioned four Ayrshire composers, Jay Capperauld, Michael Murray, Electra Perivolaris and Gillian Walker to write linking episodes between each new community song. Rounding off each concert will be a piece called Eleven specially composed by James MacMillan for this project. There have been various pieces of music inspired by sport over the decades, and by football in particular. Eleven is another one, inspired specifically by the local teams in East Ayrshire and dedicated to the supporters of Auchinleck Talbot, Cumnock Juniors, Glenafton Athletic, Lugar Boswell Thistle and Muirkirk Juniors.
