Formed by violinists and artistic directors Emily Davis and Catriona Price, Thirteen North is a new string ensemble made up of 13 of Scotland's best players with the aim of bringing classical music to a new and diverse audience. The ensemble's debut performance is Connected at St Luke's Glasgow on 29 June 2023. The ensemble will perform three new commissions by folk-influenced Scottish composers Pàdruig Morrison, Catriona Price, and Pippa Murphy, complemented by Bartók’s Divertimento for Strings. The event also features the work of Glasgow-based filmmaker Bircan Birol, who has collaborated with the three composers to create short films in response to the themes explored through their music – generations, culture, and tradition.

Connected aims to offers audiences an escape from the (oftentimes daunting) formal concert hall environment into a more relaxed and interactive space, stretching the boundaries of the traditional classical music experience and bringing it to the 21st century audiences it needs and deserves.

Further details about Connected from the St Luke's Glasgow website.
