Three conductors are joining forces for a weekend of Mozart at two churches on either side of the River Tweed.

John Stone, Geoffrey Emerson and Jim Letham are combining their talents – and those of their musicians – and supported by Creative Scotland, they have been rehearsing in order to host The Mozart on Tweed Festival.

The opening concert is at St Mary’s, Ladykirk, tomorrow at 7.30pm, when Andante Chamber Choir present a-cappella choral music, The Heavens And The Earth, sacred motets before and after Mozart.

The two concerts on Saturday are on both sides of the Tweed.

First at St Mary’s, Fluteworks will present a coffee concert at 11am. And at 7.30pm, in St Cuthbert’s, Norham, The Yetholm Sinfonia and soloists present Magnificent Mozart: Overture The Deluded Bridegroom, Sinfonia Concertante for Violin and Viola and the Jupiter Symphony.
