A baroque ensemble of the most talented young singers and instrumentalists in Scotland will be performing its debut concert in St Andrews on Sunday.

The Kellie Consort was founded by Tom Wilkinson, University of St Andrews organist and director of St Salvator’s Chapel Choir.

Taking its name from the 18th century Scottish composer Thomas Erskine, 6th Earl of Kellie, it is Scotland’s only ensemble to offer professional performance opportunities to the most talented and ambitious young baroque specialists.

The programme consists of Bach’s cantata no. 4, ‘Christ lag in Todesbanden’, Rameau’s ‘Suite from Dardanus’, and Handel’s ‘Dixit Dominus’.

Sunday’s concert is at 7.30pm in St Salvator’s Chapel and will be followed by performances in Glasgow and Edinburgh next week. See www.kellieconsort.wix.com/kellie-consort for more details.
