Join the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Refugee Festival Scotland for a special family-friendly concert celebrating the power of a good song!

This concert brings together three unique Glasgow-based choirs with culturally diverse memberships which include New Scot singers and singers from other migrant backgrounds and the wider local community: Joyous Choir (Maryhill), Soloway Choir (Springburn) and Harper African Voice (Govan).

Covering an array of musical styles and traditions, the event will see the choirs performing their most-loved songs accompanied by an 18-piece ensemble from Scotland’s National Orchestra.

Celebrating how singing groups have supported New Scots to flourish in their new homes, this special event will be filled with opportunities for storytelling, sharing, and new connections. Performances will be introduced by poet Tawona Sitholé and feature new musical arrangements by Jon Hargreaves.

New Scots tickets are for refugees, people seeking asylum and other forced migrants within our communities in Scotland.
