In an unprecedented year for the world and the arts sector, Scottish Ensemble has successfully maximised its flexible and innovative model, responding to the new urgent needs of its audiences. Adapting its work for the digital sphere (as it looks to find a bold new filmic language for classical music), developing its programmes in Music & Mental Health, and continuing to connect its artistic plans with relevant contemporary issues, the group has stayed resilient and ambitious through this unpredictable period. Regular Funding support from Creative Scotland and a successful 50th anniversary fundraising campaign which culminated earlier in 2020 has also increased stability.
