Artist's For Mary's Meals presents:
Wed 2 Nov 2011 | 2pm at House For An Art Lover | £10
International charity Mary’s Meals presents the Virtuosi Recital for harp, guitar, flute, piano, violin and voice as part of their 2011 Festival Of The Arts.
Mike Clayton, former President of the Glasgow Guitar Society, plays intricate pieces from South America… Karen Clayton creates magic with her heart-rending flute. Sandy Small, whose powerful music is frequently heard on the organ at Kelvingrove Art Gallery, plays Mozart and accompanies Emily Mitchell, the newest star on the European opera scene. Eleanor Holley and Noel Donnelly introduce Scottish and French harp pieces. Sandie Bishop on violin and Flora Tzanetaki on piano complete the line-up with their stunning duets.
Complete your experience with a light lunch in the café viewing our Art Exhibition and Crafts Fair.
N.B. The Virtuosi Recital event takes place at the House For An Art Lover.

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
