Emily Wishart (soprano) aged 21 from Broxburn is in the final year of her vocal studies at RCS. She was formerly a member of the Scotland Youth Choir, NYCOS.

Mianoora Kosonen (piano) from Finland is currently studying on a Masters Accompaniment course at RCS.

The Duo have worked together for several years in live performances, masterclasses, recordings and latterly livestreams during the pandemic. One of their particular interests is to draw on their different cultures/heritages and their concert will combine Nordic songs by Greig and Scots song arrangements by Marjory Kennedy Fraser that depict glorious scenery and folklore from each region.


  Scottish Government requirements will apply. At Level 1 requirements for the audience will be:

  • Tickets must be booked in advance
  • The audience will wear face masks
  • People from one household may sit together
  • At least 2m separation between 'household groups'
  • "Test and Protect" information will be collected
  • The audience will be shown to their seats by the stewards
  • Audience members will be required to follow directions of the stewards on the day.

We intend to use the church's video screens and, microphones where necessary, to help the distanced audience feel as close to the musicians as possible.
