Dates and times
Unfortunately due to the constantly evolving coronavirus situation, this event has been cancelled. We will contact ticket holders directly as soon as possible.
Statement from Gavin Reid, Chief Executive of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra:
‘Clearly this is not a decision that we have taken lightly, but given the current advice from the Scottish Government, and in order to safeguard our audiences, supporters, players and staff, we have decided to cancel a number of forthcoming concerts. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow advice from the Scottish Government regarding future concerts and update our audiences and stakeholders as quickly and regularly as we can. However, it is already becoming apparent that this situation will inevitably place unprecedented financial pressures on both our organisations and all performing arts and artists. The SCO would therefore particularly like to acknowledge the support of the Usher Family who were due to support the Vivaldi Gloria concert in Edinburgh, Virgin Money who were due to sponsor the Vivaldi Gloria concert in Glasgow and Institut français d’Ecosse who were due to sponsor The Magic Harp concert in Edinburgh.’
Concerts scheduled after 15 April are currently planned to go ahead but this will be kept under review.
All ticket holders are entitled to a full refund and will be contacted as soon as possible by either the Box Office, or the SCO depending on how their tickets were booked. Please bear with us as we work through the refund process at this challenging time.

Gloria! Vivaldi’s setting is one of music’s most uplifting choral works full of high drama and memorable tunes. Come and experience this dazzling piece alongside spectacular concerti featuring chalumeaux, theorbos, mandolins and tromba marina (a member of the violin family).
Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev continues the Baroque theme with Corelli’s B-flat Concerto, beautifully crafted with an exquisite violin solo, while emotion is at the heart of Zelenka’s Miserere. This concert promises edge-of-your-seat stuff from the first downbeat.
