The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra is the BBC's classical music ensemble in Scotland.

Its current Chief Conductor is the Israeli-born Ilan Volkov, the youngest ever chief conductor of any BBC orchestra.

Formed in 1935, it developed a strong profile supporting the BBC Symphony Orchestra in the UK and abroad, performing regularly at the BBC Proms, the Edinburgh and Cheltenham festivals.

Every season, it tours Scotland extensively, bringing orchestral classical music to the smaller provincial towns as well as the larger cities. It also has a recording contract with Hyperion Records.

In 2006 the orchestra returned to its home, the Glasgow City Hall, which had undergone several years of restoration and refurbishment.
