Scottish Chamber Orchestra and VOCAL are working in partnership to offer unpaid carers and one companion the opportunity to hear live orchestral music from a unique collection of talented musicians who inspire and connect with people of all ages.

THE DREAM: Thursday 2 March, 7.30pm at The Usher Hall

Spend an evening with Mendelssohn the magician – creator of sunny, carefree worlds, and of spectacular Shakespearean evocations – in the company of Maxim Emelyanychev and the SCO.

The ‘Italian’ Symphony is Mendelssohn’s dazzling celebration of the blue skies and radiant sunshine he encountered in Italy – captured in music explicitly designed to transport you there.

Mendelssohn loved Shakespeare from his childhood, and he ushers you into a magical world of mismatched lovers and bickering fairies in his exquisite music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream – musical storytelling at its most vivid.

Request tickets (max 2) by clicking the ‘Request Break’ button above and completing the online form and our team will be in touch to confirm if you have been awarded tickets.

We ask that you only request tickets to one performance to ensure that as many people as possible are able to enjoy a performance.
