Our congratulations to guitarist Sasha Savaloni on winning first prize in the Seville International Guitar Competition! Sasha (along with soprano Alison McNeill) was an EMS Residency Artist from 2015-2017.
The Seville Guitar Festival is a unique world event in this music genre. Its peculiarity resides in its ability to integrate other artistic and human facets such as dance, acting, photography, painting, films, which all have their place among the strings of a Festival with participation by some of the main classical, Flamenco or jazz guitar players.
Sasha’s achievement here is hugely impressive and we are delighted that this talented duo will be giving a Music in West Kilbride concert on 22nd March 2019 – we look forward to welcoming them!

We have now completed the planning for next season’s programme, and you can see outline information by clicking on Concerts above. We will add further detail as it becomes available.
In Music in West Kilbride we are committed to promoting the arts in the West Kilbride area. As part of this, we have an active engagement with local schools, and encourage artists who perform with us to similarly engage with the local schools.
