What’s On Directory

The “What’s On” listings below represent our pick of the events taking place in St Andrews and surrounding area over the coming weeks and months.

These are just a few of the wide selection of events on offer in St Andrews. For a more comprehensive list, we recommend a visit to the excellent Event St Andrews website - this is a superb, independently-compiled comprehensive list of occasions large and small, and is especially good for community and University events.

Very occasionally, event organisers have to change arrangements at the last minute – so before travelling any distance, we always recommend you contact the individual event directly to check that it is still going ahead as planned. Our Facebook and Twitter pages are another excellent way of hearing about any late changes.

St Andrews Voices Event

sco-chorusA celebration of Brahms with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra & Chorus

Both works in this concert are influenced by a single event – the death of Brahms’ mother. Shortly after she died, Brahms took an early morning walk in the woods and was hit by a sudden ray of sunshine. This provided the stimulus for the Horn Trio, the opening theme of which is a completely satisfying and unforgettable experience that symbolises all that is romantic in music. The trio is lead by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s award-winning Principal Horn player Alec Frank-Gemmill while the German Requiem, a work of power and soul-searching beauty will be performed in its original version for piano duet with the sublime SCO Chorus conducted by Gregory Batsleer.

This event takes place in Younger Hall at 4pm  |  For more information on ticketing please click here
