Following the enforced cancellation of a number of our concerts and creative learning projects, we have been hugely encouraged by the messages of support we’ve received during this challenging time. We are especially grateful to those who have kindly donated back their ticket refunds – thank you so much from all of us at the SCO!

We know you will have many other things to think about at the moment but, if you are in a position to help us by making a donation, your forethought would be most welcome.
