BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Formed in 1935, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra has been based at Glasgow’s City Halls since 2006. It has a rich history of performing, broadcasting, and recording across Scotland and the rest of the UK, and of touring overseas, most recently to South America, China, India, and Japan. Its huge range of repertoire has developed under its Chief Conductors, who include Osmo Vänskä, Ilan Volkov (currently Principal Guest Conductor), Sir Donald Runnicles (now Conductor Emeritus), Thomas Dausgaard, and, since September 2022, Ryan Wigglesworth. It has long been a champion of new music, not least through Tectonics, its annual festival of the new and experimental, and it has established strong links with local communities through its learning and outreach programmes. It is a partner in Big Noise, Scotland’s project for social change through music, and it maintains a close association with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, in Glasgow, working across a variety of disciplines with conductors, composers, soloists, and orchestral players. The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra maintains a busy schedule of broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, BBC iPlayer, BBC Radio Scotland, and BBC television. It appears regularly at the BBC Proms and Edinburgh International Festival and is a recipient of the Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Ensemble and of four Gramophone Awards. / bbcsso
