Our continuing support of the BSO

Digital Content Team


At Investec, we take great pride in our responsibility to our local community. In Bournemouth, we choose to support the BSO as it enhances lives in the South West and beyond through music.


We have been a proud sponsor for eight years. We’re delighted that this support has helped the BSO to be one of the first UK orchestras to livestream full symphonic performances and, in doing so, lead the way for the return of the live music industry. Luckily for us it also means we get exclusive interviews and backstage access to see the work that goes into bringing the music to life.

Scott Jones, Head of our Bournemouth office, sits down with the BSO’s Chief Executive Dougie Scarfe and takes a look at what the BSO has been up to over the past year. This exclusive interview looks at how the BSO has coped through the pandemic, as well as what the future of live/digital performance might look like.

The BSO was silenced for the longest period in its 127-year history in the first national lockdown last year but made a triumphant and ground-breaking return to live music with its first series of livestreamed concerts in the autumn.

We take a behind-the-scenes look at what the BSO have been up to and how streaming their concerts digitally has been made possible.
