Live Music Now Scotland in partnership with the Scottish Music Centre and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
Present PAC-T : performer, audience, composer - together
A series of three recitals, each featuring a Live Music Now Scotland commission, bringing together and celebrating the triangle of connection– or pact – made by composers, audiences and musicians that is integral to the performance of new music. The composers will be present to speak about their music and approach to composing, particularly for emerging artists in community outreach settings.
