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.

Yay! - Good reviews
Two recent concerts which we took part in have received good reviews in The Herald. In his review of the Raymond Gubbay Glory of Christmas concert Michael Tumelty said "the admirable Glasgow Chamber Choir, refined by director Michael Bawtree into a force to be reckoned with, gave splendid and sophisticated performances of the close of Handel's Messiah". He then gave 5 stars in his review of the BBC SSO Concert where we sang in Walton's Henry V. He described the performance as "the glory of glories"! We are very pleased with that!


Choral Marathon - 20th Anniversary celebrations
Glasgow Chamber choir was 20 years old last season, and to celebrate that and the fact that Glasgow was hosting the Commonwealth Games we went on a choral marathon when we popped up at venues across the city on 7 & 8 June to perform some of our favourite music as well as a selection of brand new pieces. What a weekend it was varying from sheltering from the rain on the Tall Ship to struggling to see the music in the Kibble Palace when the sun came out.

See our Press Release and what the Scotsman, Classical Music Magazine and Making Music had to say.

Many thanks to the funding bodies who allowed the commissions and marathon to happen. We were able to commission new works through the generous support of The James Wood Bequest, The Hugh Fraser Foundation, The Merchants House of Glasgow and an Anonymous Donation (you know who you are!) and the choral marathon weekend was made possible by funding from the National Lottery Celebrate Fund.

Thanks too to our composers for some great pieces, our committee who worked really hard to pull it all together and to Michael for his enthusiasm and for keeping us (mostly) under control!

Roll on the next 20 years!



Details for the complete season can be found on our Concerts page.
