We value excellence, creativity, curiosity and experimentation, and seek to nurture and support our musicians, staff and audiences in exploring these ideas through our work.
We are committed to working in a sustainable way, to supporting our local communities and to supporting the next generation of musicians, so that we — and the classical music sector — can grow and thrive.
Dunedin Consort is open, inclusive and accessible. We strive to be accessible and welcoming to everyone who works with us – musicians, staff, audiences and participants — to remove barriers to working with us, and to offer additional support to those with specific requirements to help participate in our work.
We value honesty and transparency in all that we do. Those who work with us, or participate in our work, should feel able to address concerns, to be listened to without prejudice, and to have concerns dealt with in a timely and supportive manner.
We treat others with respect and with kindness, and expect the same of anyone who represents Dunedin Consort in any setting.
To be recognised as one of the world’s leading baroque ensembles, a group that is rooted in Scotland but admired internationally for its insightful and creative programming.
To move, engage, challenge and delight our audiences with performances, recordings, educational activities and digital output of exceptional quality, both in Scotland and beyond.
To reach new audiences and diversify our activities with programming that is rooted in historical performance, but which can take our listeners on interesting — and sometimes unexpected — journeys into different repertoire. To remain relevant vital and inquisitive, and to bring the same sense of freshness, innovation and curiosity to our listeners in everything that we do.
To care for, nurture and embrace a diverse, contemporary society through a wide-ranging learning and participation programme that is accessible to all, both inside and outside the concert hall.
