Scottish Ensemble & Mish Mash Productions - in Sync

Founded in 2015, MishMash Productions is a Nottingham-based company creating musical experiences designed to in introduce young audiences to classical music in welcoming ways. Scottish Ensemble first started working with MishMash in 2022, beginning with development sessions to design a show for younger audiences. The result was in Sync. No ordinary concert, audiences get to know the musicians when they introduce themselves, interact with audiences, perform from memory, move while they play and share insights into the music being performed, all on a vibrant stage set with colourful atmosphere, thus making in Sync a joyful, energetic event for all the family. 

Scottish Ensemble reunites with MishMash for performances of in Sync in Aberdeen Concert Hall (4 November 2023) and Glasgow's RSNO New Auditorium (9 November 2023), along with a tour to schools in Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee. Audiences will hear music from Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, genre-defying composer and Scottish Ensemble collaborator Anna Meredith, Indian-American composer Reena Esmail, and 17th-century theatre composer Henry Purcell, amongst many more. 

In Aberdeen, there will be two public performances, one at 7pm and an earlier performance at 2pm, which will be a relaxed performance. This version of the concert is built in order to make classical music performance more accessible to those who would benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including (but not limited to) neurodivergent people, people with a learning disability and parents with very young children. The concert environment will be ‘relaxed’ - with reduced volume, house lights remaining on, and an open-door policy and more space in the audience set up to allow audience members to come and go from the performance space as they please.
