ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD, ENDOWMENT TRUST, CHIEF EXECUTIVE AND STAFF OF THE NATIONAL YOUTH ORCHESTRAS OF SCOTLAND (NYOS)

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our dear friend and former Chief Executive, Richard Chester. Richard was a visionary within Music Education in Scotland and beyond. Always striving to create more opportunities for young musicians in both classical and jazz. He will be greatly missed, and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this very difficult time.
