in the absence of the International Lunchtime Concert series coming to

. / I Edinburghthis season, itwill no doubt ,- o. please many thata new series of " ,I. g ,. n

lunchtime proms is about to be launched. Not only is it a new idea, being a Protege Series providing a platform toryoung professionals, but it’s also being held in what will be for many a new venue, the Royal Scottish Academy at the foot of the Mound. Behind the idea is Betty Davies, who has organised similar proms with great success in Nottingham and Oxford. Friends of the RSA, who are hosts to the series, have been instrumental in raising the financial backing from commercial sponsors. Inspirations for concerts have been known to grow from some unusual acorns, but this one particularly so. Davies is also Managing Directoroi Campus and, says Veneta Vitel of Friends oi the RSA, ‘The idea came about following a fashion show Campus had put on in the Academy.‘ She also explains ‘We‘d had a series of lunchtime talks and there was a clear indication this was an excellenttime torthis opportunity. It

ofterthe general public and it's also opening up the Gallery to a new type of event.‘ Artists taking part in the series are the Mistry Quartet. clarinettist Duncan Prescott accompanied by Scott Mitchell (all, incidentally part of Sir Yehudi Menuhin's Live Music Now scheme ioryoung protesssionals taking live music to community venues), the percussionist Evelyn Glennie and, to start on Wed 27, the internationally known pianist Yonty Solomon, who is Patron oi the series. And what’s on his programme? Well, what else, ‘Pictures at an Exhbition', of course. (Carol Main)
