In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and its accompanying restrictions, the Big Noise programmes are being delivered both face-to-face (following full Scottish Government and local authority guidelines) and digitally. Find out more here.
Sistema Scotland’s mission is to transform lives through music. We work with 2,800 children and young people across our four Big Noise orchestral programmes: Big Noise Raploch in Stirling; Big Noise Govanhill in Glasgow; Big Noise Torry in Aberdeen; and Big Noise Douglas in Dundee. Independent evaluation by the Glasgow Centre for Population Health has shown that Big Noise fosters confidence, develops teamwork, builds resilience and promotes aspiration in the children and young people who take part.
