THE first of two Christmas concerts recorded at the Caird Hall in Dundee will have its premier on YouTube on Sunday.
The first concert – which will begin showing on Leisure & Culture Dundee’s YouTube Channel at 2.30pm – features the venue’s Steinway concert grand piano played by Christina Lawrie, with Marcus Barcham-Stevens on violin.
The second concert on Sunday 20 December at 2.30pm features the Caird Hall pipe organ played by Aaron Hawthorne and stars soprano Rosie Lavery.
Lawrie said: “In difficult times, music can nourish the soul, and bring solace and good cheer.
“We have put together a programme that we hope will have something for everyone.
“It’s always a wonderful experience to be in the beautiful Caird Hall, with its magnificent acoustic and splendid Steinway piano, but this concert will hold a special place in our hearts, and we are so happy to be sharing some uplifting music for Christmas 2020.
“Our little girl, Mairi-Anna, makes a guest appearance at the end, singing a carol, and that will be a lovely Christmas present for her grandparents.”
