An Invitation from KinderConcert – Meet Tuesday Rose and the Clarsach

KinderConcert are holding an event this weekend – here is an invitation from their team:

We are delighted to invite you to our 14th KinderConcert!

On Sunday, 23th March 2014 at 3pm we would like you to meet our youngest musician yet: Tuesday Rose, who will introduce the Clarsach to us. Tuesday Rose was born in 2000 and has been studying Clarsach for 5 years. She is a fluent gaelic speaker and won the medal for self-accompanied singing at the National Mod in Stornoway while still at Primary School. As well as playing and singing for private functions and garden parties, Tuesday Rose has sung and played the Clarsach live on radio and in a number of venues including The Queen`s Hall, The Usher Hall, The Royal Scots Club and The Edinburgh Society of Musicians.

Tuesday Rose likes to arrange and compose her own music for both self-accompaniment and Clarsach solo, and as well as her solo playing she also performs with a clarsach ensemble. She is a recipient of a grant from the EMI Foundation and The Verdi Trust.

KinderConcerts are designed as a gentle introduction to classical and traditional music for your child in a friendly environment, giving them a taster of different instruments. Your child might want to take up an instrument and would like to see different options in action, played by professional musicians, or you’d like to broaden your children’s musical horizon? Then look no further – KinderConcerts is the place to be!

The event will last around one hour: a 30 minutes performance, followed by a Q&A session with the musician, refreshments and snacks for the children and coffee and tea for the parents.

Please do let us know as soon as possible whether you would like to attend and how many of you there will be – although we have a bigger space available now, we’d still like to make sure we have a small audience and an intimate atmosphere.

Reservation is essential. If you miss out this time, we hope to welcome you to one of our future KinderConcerts.

Here are the details again:
Sunday, 23th March 2014, at 3pm, the address is 1 Chalmers Crescent, Edinburgh EH9 1TW. (There are two churches on this street, we are in the one that looks less like a church, is on your right, as you approach from the Meadows, and is slightly set back with a big front garden.)
We would kindly ask for a donation of £6 per person (or £18 per family).

Musical Greetings,

Iris and Anna
