Tribute to the late Michael Tumelty

We are deeply saddened to hear about the loss of music critic Michael Tumelty. Michael was a hugely respected figure in the Scottish classical music scene. He was a great champion and supporter of the RSNO. He gifted the society a library of his books and audience members will fondly remember him as a regular speaker at our pre-concert talks. On several occasions, over the years, he joined the Orchestra on tour. There will be great sadness throughout the RSNO, and beyond, for the loss of a man who made many friends in a lifetime of service to music. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
