2017 is the 150th anniversary of the founding of PSNS – and to celebrate the occasion we invited a special guest to be the first speaker in our ‘Curious Minds’ lecture series. Dame Evelyn Glennie talked about how she overcame profound deafness to become the World’s leading solo percussionist.┬áThe evening took the form of a conversation, with a musical interlude by the Perth & Kinross Schools Percussion Ensemble. Dame Evelyn talked about her life journey, gave musical demonstrations, and took questions from the audience.

 

Dame Evelyn was only the first of a great line-up of fascinating speakers in our Curious Minds series.

The full programme, with ticket information, can be found on the Curious Minds page.

Each PSNS Section has its own programme of talks and excursions listed on their individual pages on this site (see header for links). You can also download a pdf version listing all the forthcoming section talks by clicking on the link below:
