A BUSINESS partnership that has helped bring the Royal National Scottish Orchestra (RSNO) to Shetland has been shortlisted for a prestigious award.
The collaboration of oil and gas company Total, Capital Solutions, Loganair and NorthLink Ferries with the RSNO is in the running to scoop the ‘First in a Lifetime’ category as part of the 2012 Arts & Business Scotland Awards.
Through their contributions the four companies enabled the RSNO to embark on its most geographically ambitious residential endeavour – Out and About in Shetland – in March this year.
The visit to Shetland incorporated five days of rehearsals, performances and workshops across the islands, and was the most northerly element of the BBC’s Music Nation.
The winners will be announced during an awards ceremony in Edinburgh, on 24 October.
