Orchestra in Residence at the University of St Andrews

Maxi StAFCO 2

Bringing the Orchestra into the heart of university life

Since 2009, we have been proud to be the Orchestra in Residence at the University of St Andrews. Both organisations have enjoyed a close relationship over many years and this designation is the first professional orchestra residency at a Scottish university.

In addition to performing five main season concerts in the University's Younger Hall, our residency involves several collaborative projects, including masterclasses and workshops, the St Andrews and Fife Community Orchestra (StAFCO), and a series of lunchtime concerts giving audiences an opportunity to hear SCO players in solo and chamber repertoire.
