This sumptuous fully costumed show immerses us in the wonderful music and the classical baroque world of one of the world’s greatest romantic composers - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

A packed programme of classical music and song, which includes excerpts from the most memorable of Mozart’s operas, such as The Magic Flute, The Marriage of Figaro, Cosi Fan Tutte, and many more.  Mozart’s most popular and famous operas are all beautifully sung by world class soloists who, alongside the ensemble, perform some of his most memorable pieces of music, including Symphony no. 40, Lacrimosa (Requiem D minor) and Eine Kleine Nacht Musik.  An evening of Mozart Masterpieces!

Time: 10:00 - 20:00

Cost: Free admission

Home and Away 4-27 Oct 2019 10:00am-8:00pm Free admission East Kilbride Arts Centre

Karin Hecht, while working as an English teacher and bringing up her family, found coming to art classes in East Kilbride Arts Centre for the last 20 years a creative and relaxing haven in which to start her artistic journey.

Now retired, she nominally has more time to pursue her passion of painting. She is also a keen gardener and the growth of many colourful plants is reflected in her paintings with an abstract floral theme.

Her other love is travelling and seeing different ways of life around the world. She paints landscapes near and far, enjoying the wealth of scenery that Scotland provides, and capturing vivid memories of holidays on canvas for posterity.

It is the love of colour and light which unites her work. Her journey, literally and figuratively, continues.

The Spirit of Bad Company & Free 18 Oct 2019 8:00pm £18.50 Village Theatre East Kilbride

Spirit of Bad Company and Free

 

Free Again, a five piece ensemble of musicians, will perform their spectacular show that gives you a concert experience of 100 minutes of pure Bad Company and Free nostalgia.

This is not a heavy rock night by any stretch, the music is more than that…much more. It’s a delicate blend of vocals, guitars and piano punctuated by a dynamic rhythm section to produce timeless, melodic classics. This concert promises to be a fantastic night to remember for all Free and Bad Company fans, young and old, new or long-standing.

The line-up, made up predominantly from the touring band Hotel California Scotland, sympathetically and faithfully recreate the authentic sound and feel of the ultimate Paul Rodgers back catalogue.
 
With the same exacting attention to detail that has made Hotel California Scotland such a popular crowd pleaser in the theatres across Scotland, Free Again are set to do it all again with a brand new, never been attempted show.
 
Expect a set that includes classic tracks ranging from Feel Like Makin’ Love to Wishing Well; All Right Now to Can’t Get Enough. You will also hear an acoustic section with beautiful piano melodies and vocal harmony. The back catalogue is exceptional, appealing to audiences of every age, evoking memories and touching the hearts and souls of each new generation.

If you liked what we did with the Eagles music, there’s every chance you’ll love this too!

Available to book online or by calling East Kilbride Arts Centre on 01355 261000.
