Taking the best in Scottish music-making to international audiences, the orchestra has worked with some of the world’s most respected conductors and soloists. Peter Oundjian has been the orchestra’s Principal Conductor since 2012. A dynamic presence in the conducting world, Oundjian is renowned for his probing musicality, collaborative spirit and engaging personality.
