RSNO appoints new principal clarinet

This article was posted on 27 Feb 2020.

The Royal Scottish National Orchestra has announced the appointment of Timothy Orpen as its new principal clarinet. Orpen moves to the Glasgow-based orchestra from the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, where he has played principal for the past four years.

Orpen commented: The Royal Scottish National Orchestra is an incredibly talented team of musicians at the heart of the musical life of Scotland and I am very excited to join as principal clarinet. The RSNO is incredibly versatile and places established masterpieces alongside cutting-edge contemporary music. I’m looking forward to bringing great music to people all over Scotland and hopefully to inspire the next generation of music lovers. I also can’t wait to get into the hills and bag some more Munros!”
