SCO Wind Academy and SCO String Academy


Over the last two years we have developed an exciting partnership with Scottish Chamber Orchestra to deliver free wind and string academies which run over a number of weeks on a Sunday afternoon. 

These academies are open to aspiring school-aged string and wind musicians who have reached Grade 7 or above and who are able to commit to a series of sessions. They provide the opportunity to join Scottish Chamber Orchestra musicians to explore some fantastic (and challenging) repertoire to help develop your skills. 

Our next Academies are String Academy and Wind, Brass and Percussion and they will be taking place online. 

More details to be published shortly. 

If you would like to be kept in touch with forthcoming events, sign up to our enewsletter.
