Experience the Magic: St Mary’s Music School Summer Concert at The Queen’s Hall


Prepare for an unforgettable evening of music as St Mary’s Music School brings their acclaimed Summer Concert to The Queen’s Hall this June.

After a successful 50th Anniversary Concert in 2023, the School returns for one of two national events, which will feature an exciting line-up with music by composers Hindemith, Ticheli, Janáček and Lalo.

The highlight of the evening will be Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole, conducted by the school’s Artistic Director and RSNO player and conductor, Robert Baxter. This piece will also be performed by the 2024 Lord Clyde Concerto Competition winner, adding an extra layer of excitement to the performance.

Following the recent expansion of their Vocal Programmes, St Mary’s Music School, a prestigious institution in Edinburgh founded in 1972, is set to welcome summer with these highly anticipated concerts. Both events promises to be a showcase of talent, featuring pupils from the School’s String Ensemble, Senior Orchestra, Choristers (Edinburgh only) and Choir. Additionally, pupils from Douglas Academy will join the performance, marking an exciting collaboration for both audiences.

Robert Baxter, who has been with the RSNO for many years and took on the role of Artistic Director at St Mary’s Music School in 2023, will conduct Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole. This piece will be performed by William, a talented S4 student and the 2024 winner of the Lord Clyde Concerto Competition. Baxter has also recently conducted music for productions of Cinderella and the Scottish tour of Swan Lake.
