We are thrilled to announce that Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev will extend his contract with the Orchestra through to at least 2028, continuing the electrifying partnership for which he and the Orchestra have become known.

Maxim Emelyanychev said:

“I’m delighted to be extending my commitment to this wonderful group of musicians with whom I have shared such incredible musical experiences since our partnership began. I also love the welcome we receive from Scottish audiences, and I’m proud to join the SCO when we take our music further afield too. I’m very excited about the season ahead which celebrates the Orchestra’s 50th anniversary by showing what we do best – creating life-changing musical experiences for our audiences. I look forward to seeing you in the concert hall!"
