The Nescio Ensemble

Friday, 28th April, 2017 20:00


The Nescio Ensemble is a young, passionate, thirteen-piece string orchestra consisting of friends brought together by their love of music. Over the past five years, they have visited many beautiful places in Europe to play music. Their enthusiasm is contagious and their personal approach has brought them close to their audiences everywhere.

The ensemble consists of both professional musicians and amateurs of a very high standard. All concerts and tours are self-organized and not for profit. Playing in the ensemble provides the musicians with an opportunity to play repertoire that they love, together with their friends. This creates an invaluable energy, which is conveyed in their performances.

In their concerts, the ensemble plays a selection of the most beautiful chamber music repertoire prepared and chosen by the musicians themselves. In some pieces, the string orchestra will play together, lead by their concertmaster or a soloist from the orchestra, while in others the musicians will play in smaller groups. Among the pieces will be performed are movements of Mozart’s well-loved Quintet KV515, the fantastic Enescu Octet and Mendelssohn’s violin concerto.

At Chisholme they will perform for us for free in the pavilion.
The evening before – Thursday 27th, Nescio will be playing again for free at 7pm at Unit Four Towerdykeside, Hawick.

Light refreshments will be available at both events.

If you would like to take supper at 7pm, prior to the Chisholme concert please let us know by 27 April.

Despite our best efforts at snow clearing, one polytunnel collapsed under the weight of the recent snow. Walt Holland and friends devised a clever snow sweeper and managed to save the others from falling. See the video >>>
