Lucy Drever Appointed BBC SSO Associate Artist
We are delighted to announce that Lucy Drever has been appointed as the BBC SSO’s new Associate Artist.
Lucy is rapidly becoming one of the most respected and inspirational education practitioners through her work as a singer, presenter and workshop leader. As the BBC SSO’s Associate Artist, Lucy will be working closely with the musicians of the BBC SSO to develop new open, accessible and inclusive music in communities and with partners.
She will bring Tunes for Tots – our interactive sessions for toddlers – to more venues across Scotland, in addition to presenting concerts, leading creative workshops with young people, and developing new relaxed and inclusive music experiences. She is also taking part the new Connecting the Dots initiative, created by the BBC as a response to the COVID-19 lockdown, which offers a special experience for children still attending school.
Lucy was a core part of the BBC SSO’s recent residencies in Campbeltown and at Glasgow’s Holyrood Secondary School. She has also led workshops and presented concerts for other orchestras and organisations including the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Aurora Orchestra, Wigmore Hall and the Nicola Benedetti Foundation.
