McEwen Concerts of Scottish Chamber Music

Sir John Blackwood McEwen (1868 - 1948) bequeathed the residue of his estate to the University of Glasgow to help promote the performance of chamber music by composers of Scottish birth and descent.  Other composers resident in Scotland for a substantial period have also benefited from the fund. The University commissions a piece of chamber music annually.  You can find out more about the McEwen commission at the dedicated website: McEwen Memorial Concert of Chamber Music.
