Scotland’s pioneering string orchestra, Scottish Ensemble, seeks Trustees

Scottish Ensemble (SE), known for its sector-leading innovation, is one of the UK’s most adventurous musical ensembles. Continually challenging perceptions as to what classical music performances can look and feel like, its visually-striking productions and exceptionally versatile and skilled musicians captivate audiences across Scotland and the and online.

In addition to ground-breaking performances across the length and breadth of Scotland, SE also delivers talent development programmes and a burgeoning Music for Wellbeing programme. Connecting with healthcare and education partners across the country, this initiative grew out of a multi-year partnership with Maggie’s Centres.

The organisation is currently seeking multiple new Trustees to help it develop and realise a resilient and bold future plan, as it prepares for its next major application to principal funder, Creative Scotland.

Skills in marketing/branding; philanthropy; financial strategy; and corporate governance are particularly desirable.

The Board is also seeking to ensure it reflects the diversity of contemporary Scotland, and of SE's audiences; not all positions require previous board experience, and a full induction and training plan will be offered to all incoming Trustees.
