St Mary's Music School are thrilled to announce that after an absence of two years, they are finally able to hold their Summer Concert.

The setting, once again, will be the iconic Queens Hall in Edinburgh. They invite you to join them, and of course, their hard-working pupils for one of the highlights of the year: the annual Summer Concert. 

In addition to their regular programme, (full details of which will be revealed nearer the date of the event) the Summer Concert will feature the fourth work in their Seven Hills Project. This composition is by internationally-renowned Alumni Helen Grime. 

Helen was a pupil at St Mary's for two years, leaving in 1999. Helen then went on to study oboe with John Anderson and composition with Julian Anderson and Edwin Roxburgh at the Royal College of Music. In 2003 she won a British Composer Award for her Oboe Concerto, and was awarded the intercollegiate Theodore Holland Composition Prize in 2003 as well as all the major composition prizes in the RCM.

The piece, entitled 'Braid Hills' is inspired by the poem of the same name by Alexander McCall Smith, composed for two horns, to be performed by student Robert Johnston and teacher Ruth Brady.

All the pupils will be involved in the concert.
