The Edinburgh Schools Rock Ensemble (known as ESRE) is in its 22nd year.  These gifted young musicians come together over 2 school terms to rehearse a wide range of repertoire such as classics from the Britpop giants Blur & Pulp as well as pieces from David Bowie, Alice Merton and Talk Talk

ESRE is directed by Neil Sommerville and is supported by our Instrumental Music Instructors, School Staff and other professional musicians.

Also, performing are  a number of rock groups from various secondary schools across Edinburgh including Craigmount HS, Leith Academy, Boroughmuir HS, James Gillespie’s HS.

All secondary school’s groups are supported by our Instrumental Music Instructors and School Staff.

Join us for a terrific evening of entertainment from inspiring young musicians from across Edinburgh.

"20 years of any band is no mean feat, but even more so when it twists into characterful regeneration and presents all anew at least every few years. Edinburgh Schools Rock Ensemble has done just that, and yet stands as vital and magical as ever…. ESRE has become more than anyone could’ve expected and has done for so many aspiring musicians what no other musical training could do"SNACK - Scotland's New Music Podcast
