Concert Ailes Duo

Wed 21 June

On the occasion of the Fête de la Musique, the French Institute will host a concert by French soprano Constance Grandperrin and Scottish pianist Eleanor Pugsey !

Scottish pianist Eleanor Pugsley and French soprano Constance Grandperrin first met during their studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

After quickly establishing a shared connection and passion for music they began to work together, exploring the vast scope of classical music. They combine music from both France, Britain and Europe, including Hahn, Britten, Wagner, Duparc and Delibes. Individually, Eleanor and Constance are both rapidly emerging artists within their solo careers. Together, they look at exploring less known musical works and expanding access to classical music.

Ailes Duo joined LMNS at the beginning of 2023. They look forward to the many opportunities to bring music to a diverse range of audiences.
