In 2019, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra developed a Youth Voice Strategy to bring young voices into the heart of our company and contribute to the future development of the organisation. One of the main recommendations that came out of this was to set up a Youth Advisory Council (YAC). The purpose of the council will be to incorporate young voices into the SCO; to contribute advice and ideas to the main Board and on the organisation’s strategy; to advise SCO Board, staff and musicians on content for young people in particular; to organise an event/series of events and to act as ambassadors for the SCO.
Members were recruited in March 2021 and will meet at regular intervals throughout the year. Stay tuned to see what they get up to!
Young voices tend to contribute new ideas and perspectives that challenge longstanding beliefs and systems. They help organisations drive change, encourage innovation and become more resilient for the future.
