Jenny has been a pivotal part of the team at Scottish Ensemble for many years and during her five-year tenure as Chief Executive she has led the vision and delivery of the group’s trailblazing work.  Landmark moments under her leadership include a 50th anniversary season in 2019-20, which won the Royal Philharmonic Society Ensemble Award for its ‘sheer excellence and innovation’; leadership of The Bridge, a Creative Europe-supported initiative which saw four international ensembles join forces to forge a new European network and festival of string music in 2022; the 50th performance of flagship performance Goldberg Variations – ternary patterns for insomnia; and the launch of the new Concerts for a Summer’s Night annual tour. The National Centre for Music is being developed in the Royal High School building in Edinburgh, conserving Thomas Hamilton’s architectural masterpiece and creating a national resource and cultural beacon that is dedicated to nurturing and promoting Scotland’s musical talent.  

The search for the next Chief Executive of Scottish Ensemble will begin shortly. Full details about the role will be available soon via our website.
