18-20 Orkney Street, Govan, Glasgow, UK
Named after the shipbuilding barons, Govan’s orchestra revitalises local venues with performances and makes music with Govan’s diverse communities. Since our first concert in Govan Old Parish Church in May 2017, we have worked with local communities and agencies to build a new story for Govan as thriving arts hub, community music centre and regeneration orchestra.
Our asylum-seeking and refugee Musicians in Exile have become famous for bringing diverse peoples together to tell new stories about Scotland’s new Scots. We align closely with Glasgow University’s Riverside Innovation District, the Govan-Partick Footbridge project, Central Govan Action Plan and the local housing associations, among others, to maximise impact.
