Update on Pekka Kuusisto's Residency

1 Mar 2022

News Story

Sadly, due to family circumstances Pekka Kuusisto will no longer be able to join the SCO for his planned Residency this month.

Pekka was due to direct/perform three programmes with the Orchestra: New York Counterpoint (6 Mar), Seek The Light (10/11 Mar) and America, The Beautiful (16/17/18 Mar). Our thoughts are with Pekka and his family at this difficult time.

We are grateful that violinist/director Hugo Ticciati has agreed to step in for Pekka for the entirety of the Residency. An acclaimed violinist, leader and conductor, Hugo has a huge passion for contemporary, non-western and traditional music alike and we hugely appreciate him joining us for these three exciting projects at such short notice.

The main structure of the three concert programmes remains in place, but there have been some necessary changes(*) which are outlined below:
