Charity registered in Scotland SC015039

The internationally celebrated Scottish Chamber Orchestra (SCO) is made up of a unique collection of talented musicians who inspire and connect with people of all ages. From re-imagining the classical masters and romantic greats, to sharing contemporary commissions, the world-class musicians of the SCO are passionate about playing: and with inspirational young conductor Maxim Emelyanychev at the helm, our live performances are anything but predictable! We aim to provide as many opportunities as possible for people to hear live orchestral music by touring the length and breadth of Scotland and around the world as proud ambassadors for Scottish cultural excellence. In recent years, the Orchestra has travelled throughout Europe, the Far East, India and the USA. The SCO makes a significant contribution to Scottish life both on the concert platform and beyond, working in schools, universities, hospitals, care homes and community centres through its award-winning Creative Learning programme.
