The Scottish Chamber Orchestra will appear at Stonehaven Town Hall on Thursday 27 June, as part of its 2024 summer programme, marking the 45th anniversary of its Scotland-wide summer tours, bringing together a host of exceptional conductors and soloists to present world-class, live classical music to over 20 more remote Scottish locations.

The SCO’s musicians are celebrated throughout the Summer Tour. SCO Leader Stephanie Gonley directs a programme designed to show off the versatility of the string orchestra, with richly scored works including Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings and Mozart’s sprightly Divertimento. Elgar’s Baroque-inspired Introduction & Allegro and Webern’s Langsamer Satz round-off the performance.

From Stranraer in the South to Thurso in the North, the SCO Summer Tour aims to build relationships with local communities, put SCO musicians centre-stage and bring world-class concerts to audiences who might otherwise not be able experience them.

Gavin Reid, Chief Executive of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra said: “As we continue to mark our 50th Anniversary this year, we are so excited once again to be off on a tour across the length and breadth of Scotland to share the joy of live music-making. ‘

With Maxim Emelyanychev and many of our own players at the helm, it’s fitting that our 45th Summer Tour showcases more than ever the sheer range of what the SCO has to offer audiences, wherever and whoever they are. We look forward to seeing you there!’
