After much anticipation, the Scottish Ensemble musicians, Chief Executive, and Planning and Development Manager all boarded an early morning flight today, Wednesday 3 April, headed for Los Angeles! Final rehearsals for the 11-date tour of the USA with trumpeter Alison Balsom took place on Monday 1 and Tuesday 2 April in Glasgow, and the Ensemble were feeling confident about the upcoming concerts.
The tour coincides with Scotland Week – a week long celebration of Scotland in the USA and Canada, from 3 – 10 April this year. Further information about Scotland Week events and activities, and our involvement in Scotland Week can be found here.
