Established in 1994, Orkney Camerata brings together a variety of musicians from across the Orkney community.   For this 2024 Johnsmas Foy, they present a tour of the northern seas with a nod to the Nordic heritage of the islands and music old and new.    Peppered with readings of poetry and prose, the concert features music based on the Hymn to St Magnus by Andra Patterson and a work by Sarah Cattley written as part of a project to celebrate the centenary of George Mackay Brown.
