First Light Ensemble is a group of vibrant musicians, brought together by the well-known violinists Clio Gould and Jonathan Morton. With strong links to the area, Jon and Clio have created a first class ensemble to perform a mix of inspirational music for this first appearance by the Ensemble here at First Light. Led by Jonathan, who is best known as the Artistic Director of the Scottish Ensemble, members of the group include Thom Gould (Aurora Orchestra), Peter Gregson, Claire O’Connell, Bob Smissen, Rebecca Smissen, Donald Grant and Simone van de Geissen (Elias Quartet), Bea Lovejoy, Zoe Martlew, Joe Edwards, Jonny Gee and Tom Rogerson.
Relax on the beach to works including Summer from the Four Seasons by Vivaldi, Company by Philip Glass, the Bach Concerto for Two Violins and music by Piazolla, and look out for members of the Ensemble as they will be appearing in informal performances throughout the duration of the Festival.
