As COP-26 comes to Glasgow this autumn, Dunedin Consort explore music’s relationship with nature and look at how the arts can both reflect and inspire environmental concerns.

Under the guest direction of the esteemed Norwegian choral director Grete Pedersen, Dunedin’s a cappella consort perform music by J.S. Bach, James MacMillan, and Jan Sandström, with a new work by Drew Hammond and Isobel McArthur — jointly commissioned by Dunedin Consort, St Andrews Voices, The Dear Green Bothy and Music at the University of Glasgow — as the centrepiece. Journeying between Scotland and Scandinavia, this evocative programme of old and new explores the deep-seated connections between these neighbouring landscapes, and the musical themes that course between the two.

Pre-concert talk

Join Dunedin Consort for a pre-concert conversation with Drew Hammond and Isobel McArthur, hosted by composer Gareth Williams at 18.30.

Presented as part of The Dear Green Bothy, a collaborative cultural programme from the University of Glasgow’s College of Arts showcasing creative and critical responses to climate emergency.
