Homecoming II at the Queen’s Hall

On Monday 4th March, the City of Edinburgh Music School held its second Homecoming concert in Edinburgh’s iconic Queen’s Hall, celebrating students past and present in a joyful showcase of musical skill and performing prowess.

 

CoEMS musicians from Broughton and Flora’s wowed a packed house with solo and ensemble numbers, culminating in a memorable performance of Mackay’s Memoirs, Martyn Bennett’s powerful and moving final work: commissioned for the centenary of Broughton High School, written specifically for his fellow CoEMS co-students and then performed as part of the celebrations for the opening of the Scottish Parliament on July 1st 1999.

 

The whole evening was compèred by Lisa Kerr, a contemporary of Martyn Bennett’s at the Music School and now Principal of Gordonstoun.
