The Musicians

Our musicians are masters of their instruments. Their individual stories are of intense training and dedication to their instrument; their collective story is of a commitment to the power and impact of the chamber orchestra.

Based here in the North East, RNS musicians are for and of our vibrant community. We explore how they create music, why they create music and what being a musician means to them.

We also take a look at their lives away from the busy international diary of a world-class chamber orchestra by asking, ‘how do you live?’
