About Glasgow Phoenix Choir: Concert and CD Launch

This is a free concert – tickets can be obtained from choir members
or online at We Got Tickets.

The Glasgow Phoenix Choir rose out of the ashes of the world-famous Glasgow Orpheus Choir and this year celebrates 118 years of choral excellence – 68 years as the Glasgow Phoenix Choir and 50 years as the Glasgow Orpheus Choir. The choir flourishes under the guidance of our conductor Marilyn J Smith MBE and Cameron Murdoch, accompanist and depute conductor. The choir performs over 20 concerts per year and each involves a range of music from choral standards to new music and, in addition, we feature many delightful solo performances by choir members.

Glasgow Phoenix Choir recordings receive regular play on local and national radio stations. Our latest CD, launched to coincide with this concert, was recorded in Govan Old and is a special postcard CD celebrating in song the Govan Stones, the River Clyde and the Iona Community. It was recorded in association with the Vivian Angus Bequest and supported by Clachan Hydro Scheme, Kintyre and includes a range of inspirational music - Howard Goodall’s arrangement of Love Divine; The Ground by Ola Gjeilo from his Sunrise Mass; Iona by Edmund Walters; The Seal Lullaby by Eric Whitacre; Cesar Franck’s Psalm 150 and Clare Benediction by John Rutter. In addition, there’s a special version of the Song of the Clyde sung by Bill Forrest who, this year, celebrates 60 years with the choir.

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