BBC Symphony Orchestra at the St Magnus Festival - #2

Producer, R3 Multiplatform

We can relax! The BBC Symphony Orchestra truck containing all the instruments, some bikes and other kit has arrived on Orkney mainland; you can watch the truck disembarking from the MV Hamnavoe (the old Norse name for Stromness, meaning 'Home Port' or 'Safe Haven') on a rainy Thursday evening. It is 711 miles from the Orchestra's base at Maida Vale Studios in London, to Kirkwall, where the concerts will take place.
