Scots star Nicola Benedetti to grace Usher Hall

Posted: 11th November 2014

One of Scotland’s foremost musical stars will entertain hundreds of Edinburgh music lovers as part of a concert sponsored by Capital Document Solutions.

Conducted by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO), Oundjian and Benedetti takes place at the city’s Usher Hall on Friday, November 14.

Nicola Benedetti, an internationally renowned classical violinist, will be joined by the RSNO’s music director, Peter Oundjian, to perform Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.4 and Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No.1.

Originally from West Kilbride, Nicola has performed at some of the world’s most prestigious venues as part of major orchestras. In 2013, she was awarded an MBE for her services to music and charity.

Tom Flockhart, founder and managing director of office equipment specialist Capital Document Solutions, said: “Nicola Benedetti is one of the brightest musical talents this country has to offer so we are delighted for our company to be associated with this concert, which promises to be a fantastic occasion.

“The RSNO does a terrific job in raising the profile of the arts in Scotland and, as a long-standing supporter of the organization, it is an honour to help them continue their fine work.”

Limited tickets for the concert are available to buy via the RSNO’s website:
