SCO Sub-Principal Horn, Harry Johnston said: “It is a great privilege to be part of the SCO Wind Soloists and being able to tour our music across Scotland for the past 40 years, has given us the opportunity to establish ourselves as an internationally renowned recording ensemble.

“At no other time of the year are we so close to our audiences and their warmth and enthusiasm has been a vital ingredient in many a memorable musical experience. Add to that the pleasure of re-forging friendships with our warmest supporters and you will understand why our summer tour is one of the happiest times of the year for us”.

"The SCO 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."
