NO it’s not a Science lesson, it’s the next Music in Peebles concert on Sunday afternoon.

The quirky named Hermes Experiment is a group of young musicians who are changing the traditional classical concert experience. They have a unique combination of instruments – a double bass (Marianne Schofield), a clarinet (Oliver Pashley), a harp (Anne Denholm) and soprano voice (Héloïse Werner).

The four are dedicated to creating music which is innovative and unique.

Everything that the ensemble performs is new because they make their own creative arrangements of known works.

And they have commissioned works from over 40 contemporary composers for their ensemble – three of whom are featured in their programme this weekend.

For Sunday's concert they have chosen music by Richard Rodney Bennett, Leonard Bernstein, Peter Maxwell Davies, Claude Debussy, Soosan Lolavar, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, Giles Swayne and Freya Waley-Cohen, with which to be creative.

You will have to come along to the concert to find out how they do it.

The Tunnell Trust assists young professional chamber music ensembles and Scottish chamber music promoters by running an award scheme whereby the Trust pays the fees of outstanding young groups to play in venues all over Scotland with an emphasis on helping promoters in small and remote places as well as in the major centres.

Music in Peebles are very grateful to the Trust for supporting The Hermes Experiment and for making possible their visit to the Borders.

This concert is also subsidised by Enterprise Music Scotland through funding provided by Creative Scotland.
