We are delighted to welcome you to Glasgow Chamber Choir’s 25th Anniversary Season!
We have an exciting year ahead with concerts in Glasgow, Ayrshire, Linlithgow, Renfrewshire and the Netherlands.
Our season begins on Saturday 23rd November in St Margaret’s Episcopal Church, Newlands, with A European Odyssey – a musical journey around Europe. From the joyful setting of a Galician lovesong from north-west Spain, through a spell-binding evocation of a night of snow, Un Soir de Neige by French composer Poulenc, to Jaako Mantyjarvi’s emotive cantata dedicated to all those who perished in the Estonia maritime disaster of 1994, it promises to be an emotional evening. The programme also contains music from Croatia, the Faeroes, and Scotland.
This year our Christmas concert will be held in Craigie Symington Parish Church, one of Scotland’s oldest and most beautiful churches – a perfect setting to celebrate the festive season. After a varied selection of Christmas music, we invite you to join us for a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.
In our 25th season, we are delighted to celebrate our long-standing relationship with St Joris Kamerkoor from the Netherlands. In March we will travel to the Netherlands to join our Dutch friends for a wonderful weekend of music-making, and they will come to Scotland in April, when we look forward to performing Bruckner’s Mass in E minor in St Michael’s Parish Church, Linlithgow. We finish our anniversary season with summer concerts in St Bride’s Epsicopal Church in the West End of Glasgow, and in Houston and Killellan Kirk, Renfrewshire.
Another exciting musical journey lies ahead and we very much hope that you will join us for all or part of it!
