We are currently in a rare and beautiful moment in Scotland’s history, where a phenomenal combination of individuals and organisations are tirelessly working together to achieve the highest possible inclusivity and excellence in music, all equally committed to enriching our national story and legacy, and furthermore, we have governmental commitment to free instrumental tuition for Scotland’s young people. It feels like such an exciting time for classical music in Scotland. Scottish Young Musicians offers the chance to celebrate the brilliant young musical talent across the country and as we move towards the National Final, I am excited to see how it develops.
