The children of Big Noise are building relationships with musicians of the very highest calibre. The Big Noise teachers are all excellent players, many performing with the best orchestras in the country.
We also have a close relationship with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra which plays inspirational concerts for us and sends a number of its members to Raploch as “BBC Buddies” who mentor the children.
One of Scotland’s most famous classical musicians, Nicola Benedetti is the children’s official “Musical Big Sister.”
We are proud of our continuing links with Venezuela and El Sistema’s most famous son, Gustavo Dudamel is Big Noise’s patron. We have an ongoing relationship with the Millennium String Quartet which has visited Raploch twice and worked with the children for extended periods.
