Event Navigation

Take one professional string orchestra. Build another one, from students at the start of their careers. Put in one intensive week of coaching. Showcase the result.

Following a dedicated week of practice and coaching, 12 young musicians from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland join forces with SE’s principal players to create a veritable strings supergroup featuring the musicians of today and tomorrow.

“Working with Scottish Ensemble has been a hugely rewarding experience. The rehearsals are funny, serious, passionate, bonded, open minded… From the word go you’re treated like a professional musician. There’s no special dispensation for being a student; you’re one of the team and this has an incredible effect on the way you play. You find confidence and energy that you hadn’t found before; you try to match the amazing quality of playing you are surrounded by; you try and contribute something worthy of the music making going on around you. It’s a sink or swim situation and it’s so, so encouraging to know that the players believe you are capable of swimming.”
