With a current membership of around 30 singers, Glasgow Chamber choir was founded in 1994 and has developed into one of Scotland’s finest amateur choirs. The repertoire spans the Rennaissance to the present day and has included the Scottish premiere of James Whitbourn's "Son of God" Mass for mixed voices, organ and soprano saxophone and a performance of James MacMillan's Mass with the composer present. We aim to perform 4 or 5 concerts a year and are available for private performances including weddings and carol concerts.

Choral Marathon - 20th Anniversary celebrations
We are thrilled to have received a National Lottery Celebrate award of £7,100 to commission new works which we will perform in 5 interesting venues for our forthcoming ‘Commonwealth Choral Marathon’ weekend in June. See our Press Release and what the Scotsman, Classical Music Magazine and Making Music have to say.

So far we have received four new pieces which we are busy practising and we anticipate the arrival of the final two very soon. Watch this space!

Going Dutch
We had a great trip in March to our friends in the St Joris Kamerkoor from Amersfoort in the Netherland (see our News Archive for a video of us performing together in the St. Catharinakathedral, Utrecht on the last trip). We are now looking forward to their return visit in May.
