A WORLD-RENOWNED chamber orchestra is set to perform in the Wee County as part of its summer tour.

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra (SCO) will be in Dollar on Friday, June 28, with a Summer Serenade that showcases musical shores far and wide.

SCO's wind soloists will be setting sail with Ruth Gipps’ warmly evocative Seascape, visiting the Middle East with André Caplet’s Persian Suite and giving a reminder of home in the Trio by Kevin McCrae, a former SCO cellist.

The concert will end in the United States with Arthur Bird’s joyous Serenade, a true gem of the wind music repertoire.

It will form a part of the famous orchestra's 2024 summer programme, marking the 45th anniversary of its Scotland-wide summer tours.

The programme brings together a host of exceptional conductors and soloists to present world-class live classical music at a range of locations.

Gavin Reid, chief executive at the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, said: “As we continue to mark our 50th anniversary this year, we are so excited once again to be off on a tour across the length and breadth of Scotland to share the joy of live music-making.

“With Maxim Emelyanychev and many of our own players at the helm, it’s fitting that our 45th Summer Tour showcases more than ever the sheer range of what the SCO has to offer audiences, wherever and whoever they are.

“We look forward to seeing you there!”

Ahead of the Dollar date, wind soloists will also be in Dunoon on June 26 and Killin on June 27.

The full orchestra will present four programmes as part of the summer tour with conductor Maxim Emelyanychev taking the orchestra to Helensburgh on July 3, Blair Atholl on July 4, Kinlochleven on July 5 and Callander on July 6.

There will be much more, with the full programme available online.

For Clackmannanshire audiences, the musical event will take place at Dollar Academy from 7.30pm on the night with tickets available from sco.org.uk.
