The Perth Festival of the Arts is virtual this year with a series of performances recorded ‘as live’ in the city’s cultural spaces to be broadcast online (20th – 29th May). Featuring orchestral, choral and ensemble concerts, jazz, indie/rock, folk, drama, literature, film and visual art, the programme includes a Classical Concert Series and the launch of Scotland Trending, a new focus on rising stars in all types of music music.

Highlights include the Scottish Ensemble filmed in a beautifully restored rustic barn performing a repertoire of uplifting music from throughout Europe and the Americas, the British vocal ensemble The Gesualdo Six with works from Renaissance Italy, captured in Perth Museum and Art Gallery; and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in Perth Concert Hall (pictured) playing Mozart and Mendelssohn, the latter with guest violinist Nicola Benedetti.
