AN afternoon of classical nostalgia will be served up later this month at the Heart of Hawick.

Sporano Aimee Toshney and pianist Ewan Gilford will perform some of the best-loved arias as well as songs from the shows and a few traditional favourites at the Hawick Music Club concert.

Their programme features compositions from Puccini, Lehar and Gilbert and Sullivan as well as French melodies by Debussy, Poulenc and Hahn.

The audience can also expect several songs from the golden age of musical theatre by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Jerome Hern, and Webster and Fain.

And there will also be a few Scots song including Burns.

Aimee and Ewan met whilst students at the Royal Northern College of Music in 2010, quickly forming a duo leading to them perform all over the country and winning over 20 awards and scholarships between them.

Both graduated with distinctions, Aimee going on to train with English National Opera while Ewan moved on to study as the RNCM Sir John Fisher Repetiteur.

Aimee's experience encompasses operatic roles, concert work, and traditional music for organisations including Homecoming Scotland and the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum.

Much in demand as a choir leader, teacher and project worker she works with organisations including NYCOS, the National Girls’ Choir, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

Ewan is a pianist and musical director for Northern Ballet.

Much in demand as an accompanist and repeteur, he has played with Opera North, the Halle Youth Choirs and Orchestra, the Philharmonic Youth Choir, Yehudi Menhuin’s Live Music Now and the Leeds International Piano Competition.

Following a superb concert by the Monzani Trio last month Hawick Music Club anticipates a performance from Aimee and Ewan that entertains just as beautifully.

Aimee and Ewan will take to the Heart of Hawick stage on Sunday, November 24 at 2.30pm.

Tickets, priced at £12 for adults and free for under 18s, are available from Heart of Hawick.
