Christmas 2020 Concert
Christina and Marcus were thrilled to be able to share their Christmas 2020 concert from the magnificent Caird Hall Dundee. It was a privilege to be able to play the hall's world-class new Steinway piano. It's always thrilling to walk onto the Caird Hall stage, but to do so during this year of global shutdown has been a particular joy. Schott Music kindly granted permission for us to perform Kreisler's Praeludium and Allegro, with continued broadcast rights.The full concert, including the Kreisler can be watched by clicking here.

The Caird Hall programme included music by Kreisler, J. S. Bach, Vivaldi's "Winter" from "The Four Seasons, Beethoven, Liszt, Schumann, some Scottish tunes and a Christmas Carol medley arranged by Marcus and featuring our little girl, Mairi-Anna.

UPDATE
Heartfelt thanks to all who have tuned in for our concerts. We are so touched by the lovely messages we have received from near and far. I will collate them soon. In the meantime, here are 2 of them.

"Your recital last Sunday was an absolute joy and such a symbol of hope in these difficult times"

"Thank you so much for treating us to this wonderful music. It is wonderful to be able to hear such a professional performance and a real tonic in a frightening time"

A lovely article in The Dundee Courier about the concert:

At this time of isolation and lockdown, we all need some comfort, and a sense of connection. Please keep sending messages, feedback and questions!

Due to Covid19, concert halls all over the world are shutting down.
Christina Lawrie and her violinist husband Marcus Barcham-Stevens (Scottish Chamber Orchestra Principal 2nd Violin, Co-leader, Britten Sinfonia) want to keep the music going and will broadcast regular concerts of violin and piano music from their living room.

Donations:
#ConcertFromOurLivingRoom is free to watch, with a voluntary suggested donation of 5. We want to share the music and bring joy, solace, and a sense of community and connectedness, so please do not feel obliged to donate!
