The Night With... is a concert series based in Scotland begun in 2016 by composer Matthew Whiteside. It is a salon style series presenting interesting classical music in intimate, informal venues (often pubs, clubs and art galleries). Since inception the series has included 16 concerts featuring 14 world premières by Juice Vocal Ensemble Red Note, James Turnbull, Wooden Elephant, Turning the Elements, the Aurea Quartet, Joanna Nicholson, Carla Rees, Emma Lloyd, Tom Poulson and Danielle Price.
“As someone who enjoys listening to classical music, but doesn't really go to many classical music events, The Night With... was perfect for me. Loved hearing the new work performed live and the informal surroundings it was presented in.”
