The Glasgow Phoenix Choir is delighted to be performing its annual spring concert in Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with our special guests Whitburn Band, Scottish Open Brass Band Champions 2018, Inverclyde Voices and Inverclyde Schools’ Senior and Junior Choirs. Our delight is, however, tinged with sadness, for this will be the final GRCH appearance of the choir under conductor Marilyn J Smith. For 28 years, the choir has flourished under her guidance, with the able assistance of Cameron Murdoch, accompanist and depute conductor. In tonight’s concert the choir will be saying, ‘Thank You for the Music, Marilyn.’

After a lifetime of singing and conducting Marilyn has decide that this will be her last season with the choir. Marilyn graduated in Singing Performance from the Royal Academy of Music, London, before moving to Scotland in 1973 where she continued post-graduate studies at the RSAMD. She has enjoyed a busy professional career, specialising in concert, recital and oratorio work and, as a member of Scottish Opera, the John Currie Singers and the RSNO Chorus, has performed throughout Scotland, the UK, Europe, Israel and the USA. In addition, Marilyn has been involved in teaching since 1975 and is currently a member of staff at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. In 1991, Marilyn was appointed Conductor and Music Director of the Glasgow Phoenix Choir and, with the choir, has toured extensively in Scotland, the UK, Europe and the USA, making live recordings in some of Scotland’s most iconic buildings. Several of her recordings with the choir have achieved silver and gold disc status. Marilyn was awarded the MBE for services to music in the 2012 New Year Honours’ list, for her services to singing, teaching and choral excellence over such a distinguished career.
The choir will greatly miss Marilyn’s energy, enthusiasm and the easy rapport she develops with audiences. Our Phoenix Family hopes to maintain a strong link with her as she begins this next stage of her life.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Phoenix Choir: Thank You for the Music are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
