Celebrating the Quilter Cheviot Krivine Series

Quilter Cheviot Celebrates Scottish Chamber Orchestra Sponsorship Success

Quilter Cheviot, part of Old Mutual Wealth, has joined Scottish Chamber Orchestra Principal Guest Conductor Emmanuel Krivine in celebrating the success of the Quilter Cheviot Krivine Series.

As the first of 2016’s Quilter Cheviot Krivine Series concerts took place at Usher Hall in Edinburgh, Quilter Cheviot Edinburgh Office Head, Mark Hallam and Emmanuel Krivine reflected on a highly successful run for the Series to-date.

The Krivine Series sponsorship is part of an ongoing relationship between the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Quilter Cheviot, which has seen the firm support a number of concerts during the last 12 months.

Incorporating six concerts, staged across Scotland, The Quilter Cheviot Krivine Series is performed by the internationally celebrated Scottish Chamber Orchestra and conducted by Emmanuel Krivine, one of the most distinguished conductors of the day whose elegant and colourful interpretations have made him a favourite with leading orchestras and soloists around the world. The first three concerts of the Series took place in November 2015.

Speaking at the event, Quilter Cheviot’s Mark Hallam said, “Our partnership with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra is an important part of our continuing bid to support arts and culture in Scotland. We are very proud to be playing a role in enabling some of Scotland’s most talented musicians to take their music to audiences across the country with such a highly respected and world-renowned conductor.”

Roy McEwan, Chief Executive of the SCO, added, “We are delighted to be associated with Quilter Cheviot, a company that shares our values of quality and integrity. The partnership allows us to continue to work with the exceptionally creative Emmanuel Krivine and to perform to diverse audiences across Scotland. Quilter Cheviot are growing into a strong player in Scottish Corporate Life and seeing them engage in Scottish culture with such enthusiasm is tremendous.”

Investors should remember that the value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and that past performance is no guarantee of future returns. You may not recover what you invest.

NOTES TO EDITORS:

The world-renowned Scottish Chamber Orchestra is made up of the finest Scottish and international musicians, and brings music to the people of Scotland and beyond.

As well as playing across the length and breadth of Scotland, they take their music around the world as proud ambassadors for Scottish cultural excellence. In recent years, the Orchestra has travelled throughout Europe, the Far East, India and the USA.

The SCO has made a significant contribution to Scottish life, not just in what it provides culturally, but in what is given back to the community. Outside the concert hall, SCO players inspire people of all ages in schools, universities, hospitals, care homes, places of work and other community settings through the work of SCO Connect, the SCO’s creative learning team.

SCO Associate Artists include Principal Conductor Robin Ticciati, Principal Guest Conductor Emmanuel Krivine, Conductor Emeritus Joseph Swensen, conductor-keyboardist Richard Egarr, director/violinist Alexander Janiczek, and mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill. All perform regularly with the Orchestra during the concert season, in the recording studio, on tour and in festival appearances.

The Orchestra enjoys close relationships with many leading composers and has commissioned more than 100 new works. These include pieces by former Composer Laureate, the late Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, James MacMillan, Hafliði Hallgrímsson, Judith Weir, Sally Beamish, Karin Rehnqvist, Lotta Wennäkoski, Lyell Cresswell, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Einojuhani Rautavaara, Toshio Hosokawa, John McLeod, Rolf Martinsson and Martin Suckling, who is now SCO Associate Composer.
