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.

If you’re aged 16-21 and looking to develop as a young creative leader, gain new skills and share your love of classical music with others, then apply to become an RSNO Young Ambassador.

With free tickets to concerts and access to a whole new network, this is your chance to help shape the work of the RSNO.
