Scottish Chamber Orchestra
The Scottish Chamber Orchestra (SCO) is the orchestra in residence at the University of St Andrews. The two organisations have enjoyed a close relationship over many years with the SCO presenting an annual five-concert season at the University. This designation is the first professional orchestra residency at a Scottish university.
In addition to the concert season, the University and the SCO collaborate on a number of innovative projects, including:
- masterclasses and workshops
- the St Andrews and Fife Community Orchestra (StAFCO)
- lunchtime recitals featuring SCO players in solo and chamber repertoire.
The University and the SCO also jointly support a graduate traineeship, a one-year placement for recent St Andrews graduates. The traineeship provides substantial opportunities for training and personal development through work on a wide range of projects with both organisations.
For further details of the residency, please see the SCO website.
