Travellers to conduct RSNO in Glasgow Airport

3:16, 29th August 2017

Glasgow Airport is offering ten travellers the chance to conduct the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO).

Those passing through the airport on the morning of 31 August should express their interest in conducting the 50-strong ensemble through social media.

Ten individuals will be chosen to take up the baton, with RSNO assistant conductor Holly Mathieson on hand to offer guidance.

Glasgow Airport will be hosting a poll on its Facebook page to pick the piece of music that the lucky passengers will get to conduct. Members of the public can vote for the ‘Overture’ from Rossini’s William Tell; ‘Montagues and Capulets’ from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet; or Scottish ceilidh favourite Eightsome Reels.

Participants will also receive a goodie bag courtesy of Glasgow Airport and the RSNO, and the apprentice conductor deemed the most proficient will win vouchers to spend in the airport’s retail and catering outlets.

Passengers and visitors to Glasgow Airport who wish to register their interest in conducting the orchestra on Thursday should do so via the RSNO’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram accounts, or by informing a member of Glasgow Airport staff before 9.30am on the day. There are a limited number of opportunities, so places will be given on a first-come-first-served basis.
