Dunblane Cathedral

Katherine Wren – viola
David Martin – viola

Nordic Viola will take you on an extraordinary journey in words and music to the Faroe Islands, Shetland, Iceland and Greenland. The islands are bound together by a common seafaring heritage and share musical and cultural connections. In a programme formed from viola player Katherine Wren’s artistic and cultural experiences during six months travel in the region, she and fellow RSNO musicians share contemporary reflections, traditional melodies and personal testimonies that are shaped by vast northern landscapes.


For a fascinating insight into the background of this concert, read Katherine’s absorbing and beautifully illustrated blog about her travels in the northlands.
