BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Aberdeen’s Music Hall welcomes the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra on Friday, March 7.

Three pages from American history. Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings may have begun life in a neglected string quartet, but it’s become one of those rare pieces that echo the heartbeat of a nation.

On the eve of war, that same blossoming lyricism made Barber’s Violin Concerto an instant modern classic, its glorious tunes perfect for the gleaming tone of Sarah Chang.

Expect the roof of The Music Hall to be blown off as Albany Symphony Orchestra music director David Alan Miller makes a powerful case for it!

The show begins at 7.30pm. Tickets range from £10 to £20.50. Visit to book or call 01224 641122.
