BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra; October 22 , 2014

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra has announced that Donald Runnicles will become its Conductor Emeritus in September 2016, when he will step down from the post of Chief Conductor.

Runnicles has been at the helm of the orchestra for the past five years, but has worked with the BBC SSO since 2001. The Emeritus role means that he will continue to appear annually with the orchestra from the 2016/17 season onwards.

Donald Runnicles commented: “Since the beginning it has been my great privilege to lead and work with this remarkable group of musicians. I’ve always been struck by their extraordinary passion for and commitment to a phenomenal range of repertoire – and the relationship continues to blossom. I am honoured and gratified to assume this new role, which enables me to deepen the artistic bond with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.”
