Orchestra in Residence

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra is 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's Younger Hall, and this new designation is the first professional orchestra residency at a Scottish University. 

In addition to the concert season, the University and the Orchestra collaborate on a number of innovative projects, including masterclasses and workshops, the St Andrews and Fife Community Orchestra (StAFCO), and lunchtime recitals featuring SCO players in solo and chamber repertoire. See the latest copy of Music in St Andrews for full details.

The University and the SCO also jointly support a Graduate Traineeship, a one-year placement for recent St Andrews graduates, providing 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.
