"Gemma McGregor’s music was brilliant, carefully condensed and melodical"


On Thursday June 14th at Stromness Town Hall at 7.30pm there will be a recital of music by women composers for flute and piano performed by Gemma McGregor and Kesia Decote. The programme will include Tantrum for solo flute and Always By the Shore for piano by Gemma McGregor.

 Two commissions were premiered at Goldsmiths University on 8th March 2018: The Enquiry for violin and piano, and Almost White, for shakuhachi. This was the first concert of a tour by contemporary music group, Illuminate, which went on to Oxford, Brighton, Stafford and Cardiff. 

 'The Story of Magnus Erlendsson' (an opera by Gemma McGregor with words by Ron Ferguson that premiered last June at the St Magnus Festival), has been nominated for a Scottish New Music Award.
