Mission Statement

We are a community of freelance orchestral musicians living and working in Scotland, whose members perform variously for every professional orchestra and classical ensemble in the country. Like others suffering during the coronavirus pandemic, our individual sources of income almost entirely disappeared overnight. Collectively we have noticed the lack of organised support for freelance musicians.

This project is for orchestral freelancers in Scotland who have lost their voice during this difficult time, and who wish to continue creating music together. Initially we will share our music through virtual platforms, with the intention of undertaking physical performances as Covid-19 guidelines are eased.

Full Mission Statement 

We hope that by raising awareness of our current circumstances, this project will help to amplify our voices as a freelance community so that ultimately, we can begin to share music again.

For our next project, our aim is to commission 3 BAME/female composers, each to write 3 short 1 minute postcards for our ensemble. By donating and helping us achieve our goal for this next project, we will be able to pay all 36 members proper Musicians Union recording rates, the composers commissioned, for video and sound editing and also the administrative costs to run this ensemble. 

We sincerely hope you will consider donating towards our cause.
