Fresh from their five-star performance at this year’s Edinburgh International Festival, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra (SCO) prepare to conclude their 2019 summer tour at Barrfields Theatre on Friday 13 September - with internationally-renowned artists Adam Walker and Moritz Gnann.

Over the years, the SCO has received rapturous responses from audiences throughout Ayrshire and this September, they are delighted to be returning with British flautist Adam Walker and Scandinavian conductor Daniel Blendulf for an evening of inspiring music. Walker makes his SCO debut performing Nielsen Flute Concerto - the very piece that catapulted him to fame back in 2004 when he was a BBC Young Musician of the Year finalist. The programme also features stirring symphonies by “Father of the Symphony” J Haydn and his admired friend WA Mozart, a composer which Haydn described as “the greatest composer known to me by person and repute”.

SCO Sub-Principal Double Bass, Adrian Bornet describes the Orchestra’s summer tours as “one of the happiest moments of music making in our yearly calendar as we explore a beautiful country and revisit familiar places and audiences. As a national company the SCO takes pleasure and pride in visiting the length, breadth and width of Scotland, not only performing but receiving the friendship and enthusiasm of our audiences in places small and large.”

Inspiring New Generations The Orchestra is passionate about sharing the experience of exceptional live orchestral music-making and inspiring new generations of classical music lovers. The summer tour supports this mission by making concerts as accessible as possible to younger audiences by offering free tickets to Under 18s and £6 tickets for Under 26s, students and the unemployed. Since September 2017, almost 1000 under 18s have attended an SCO concert.
