Music - Orchestral manoeuvres

9th October 2009 at 01:00

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra has been designated orchestra in residence at the University of St Andrews - a move which will enhance the enjoyment of concert-goers and support student musicians and local pupils. They will work together to:

- provide a series of pre-concert talks: these will include an interview with the orchestra's new principal conductor, Robin Ticciati, and a talk on Ligeti's Piano Concerto by Michael Downes, director of music at the university;

- provide instrumental teaching for students by SCO players;

- introduce a series of masterclasses by Scottish Chamber Orchestra players;

- co-ordinate an annual teachers' reception to develop relationships with local schools;

- develop the Applaud scheme, giving University students practical experience of arts marketing and orchestra and event management;

- offer internships or work experience opportunities for students with the SCO;

- develop alumni relations through its events;

- work together to develop music education for the community, including building relationships with schools and contributing to the music centre's new initiatives for primary-school age children.
