Royal Scottish National Orchestra

The Royal Scottish National Orchestra is Scotland's national symphonic ensemble and is one of the country's National Performing Companies. Formed in 1891 as the Scottish Orchestra, the company became the Scottish National Orchestra in 1950, and was awarded Royal Patronage in 1991. Throughout its history, the Orchestra has played an integral part in Scotland's musical life, including performing at the opening ceremony of the Scottish Parliament building in 2004. Many renowned conductors have
contributed to its success, including George Szell, Sir John Barbirolli, Sir Alexander Gibson, Neeme Järvi and Stéphane Denève.

 In 2012 the RSNO welcomed British-Canadian musician and conductor Peter Oundjian as its latest Music Director and Danish conductor Thomas Søndergård as Principal Guest Conductor. The RSNO performs across Scotland, including concerts in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen, Perth and Inverness. The Orchestra appears regularly at the Edinburgh International Festival and at the BBC Proms in London. Recent appearances in England have included performances at Manchester's Bridgewater Hall, Leeds Town Hall, The Sage, Gateshead and at The Sands Centre, Carlisle.

The RSNO regularly appears at the St Magnus Festival, Orkney, and has made recent tours to France, Germany, Spain, Austria, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Serbia. In December 2012 and January 2013 the Orchestra undertook its first mainland Asia visit with a hugely successful tour of China with Peter Oundjian.

The RSNO has a worldwide reputation for the quality of its recordings, receiving two Diapason d'Or de l'année Awards for Symphonic Music for the Roussel Symphonies (Naxos) and orchestral works by Debussy (Chandos), both with Denève, and eight GRAMMY Award nominations over the last decade.
