Music in Stirling

There are two purposes to this website:

  1. information for concert-goers
  2. to help organisations avoid clashing dates.

Here you can find some of the many concerts and mainly classical musical events happening in and around Stirling, Scotland.

Currently, the majority of events listed are from some choirs and orchestras. In due course we hope to be able to accept listings from other organisations within the Stirling area.

Only events registered with us or those we've gleaned from other sources are shown here. Go to the Venues section below to see venues' own websites for events we are unable to list at this time.

Disclaimer: Please note that we can take no responsibility for the accuracy of this information. All details are subject to change. You should visit the organisation's website to confirm details.

Nordic 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. https://nordicviola.wordpress.com
