SCO Supporter Jack Bogle gives an appraisal of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra
Over 600 miles…
24 string players…
Four Seasons…and that wasn’t just the music!
While the SCO Wind and Brass were island hopping around Argyll and Arran, the SCO Strings were on their own adventure across the Highlands and Skye.
SCO Marketing and Communications Officer Sheena Macrae joined them.
It’s always nice to get out on the road with the SCO on tour. There’s great music and we all get to enjoy some of the most picture-postcard scenery that Scotland has to offer.
SCO Violinist Aisling O'Dea writes from the SCO Strings tour.
Here we are on the road again! This time SCO Strings are joined by the wonderful Isabelle van Keulen on a journey from the East to West Coast of Scotland. First stop, Woodend Barn in Banchory after which the chat as to what we could see and do en route to both Drumnadrochit and Skye began!
The first stop on our tour was the lovely town of Easdale on Seil Island via the ‘Bridge over the Atlantic’. It was the first time the SCO had played in Easdale and we received a great reception from the locals. The audience were lovely and very enthusiastic about the performance.
She directs the SCO Strings from the violin this week in Banchory, Drumnadrochit and the Isle of Skye and talks about the interesting programme is this short video.
