RSNO Young Ambassadors

Since 2013, the RSNO has run a Young Ambassadors programme with up to 20 participants each year from all over Scotland: the Western Isles to Dumfries and Galloway, the Highlands to Argyll and Bute.

This year the Young Ambassadors programme is open to young people aged between 16 - 21 years old.  Ambassadors attend RSNO concerts for free, meet the musicians and conductors and operate as a youth advisory board for the RSNO, feeding into the main RSNO Board.

Our Young Ambassadors will be expected to highlight opportunities for young people in their local area through their school, college or university and within their community.

In return Young Ambassadors will receive free tickets for RSNO concerts, work experience opportunities and will play a part in influencing the RSNO’s wider engagement strategy.

Forums are held in Glasgow throughout the season where all ambassadors will get together to share their recent experiences, work alongside the RSNO team and debate the direction of youth engagement within classical music.  All forums will be followed by Young Ambassadors attending an RSNO season performance.
