Recent operatic activity includes the critically acclaimed (5 star) production of Britten’s community opera Noye’s Fludde (Lammermuir Festival 2016) and the world premier of Scottish composer Erik Chisholm’s opera Simoon accompanied by live edited film by Roddy Simpson (Cottier Chamber Project 2015, and released as a live performance on Delphian label in November 2016). “Britten’s warm-hearted monster of a masterpiece fitted beautifully in among the festival’s bold offerings….celebrating the talents of the community, and all the benefits that brings, it was an astonishing achievement… there can have been barely a dry eye in the house”- The Scotsman (September 2016) ***** “Teeming and seething, percussive, restless and evocative...”– The Guardian (“Simoon” June 2015) **** Music Co-OPERAtive Scotland also has a thriving business portfolio with strands in the corporate sector (including promotional work for the Glenfiddich label) and wedding services - McOpera Weddings.

Reviews

From customers:

Charlotte E, 2035 years ago

Thank you so so much to the incredible quartet. They were amazing. They made our ceremony so special and the hymns sounded incredible. Everyone commented how wonderful they all were. We can’t thank you enough. Please pass on our sincere thanks to them all and thank you to you for all your help and support in arranging Best wishes

Claire S, 2 years ago

The trio were lovely, from the processional song I chose which gave me goosebumps and tingles (it was perfect), to the reception background music in the garden which set such a lovely tone. Our guests were impressed and commented on how delightful it was to have live music. just as importantly you were so helpful and friendly in the build up to the wedding, from meeting up for a coffee and general chat to advising on songs and which musicians would work best for our wedding.
