With a current membership of around 30 singers, Glasgow Chamber choir was founded in 1994 and has developed into one of Scotlandís 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
Glasgow Chamber choir was 20 years old this year, and to celebrate 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 National Lottery Celebrate Fund for the award which allowed us to commission new works for the occasion, thanks 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!

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) and enjoyed welcoming them back to Glasgow for the May bank holiday weekend. We had a wonderful time of fun, food and music making including singing in Stirling Castle and in the restaurant we took over on Sunday night.
