Let the Scottish Chamber Orchestra take the reins this New Year’s Day! With a sporting twist to this year’s programme, conductor and violinist Joseph Swensen will have you galloping through classical music’s finest waltzes and polkas. There’s also a touch of romance with Kreisler’s gorgeous love songs. Brush off the Christmas festivities and start 2018 the way you mean to go on, with great music and good company!
