Glasgow University’s Kelvin Chamber Orchestra has successfully toured the country at the end of May for the past two years. The student orchestra is highly regarded and conducted by John Grant, a master at producing exceptional music from young people.

They are delighted to announce the three venues across Scotland, starting in St Andrews, followed by Oban and culminating in their home town Glasgow. In previous years the Kelvin Chamber Orchestra have performed in many locations across the country including Isle of Skye, Lake District, Inverness and Isle of Arran. Under the baton of John Grant the exciting program is perfect for a summer concert. The repertoire includes the lesser known gem that is Beethovens' 2nd Symphony, alongside two delicate tone-poems by Delius. The clarinet beautifully depicts the cuckoo ‘On hearing the first cuckoo in spring’ and the ‘Summer night on the river’ creates a calm and peaceful atmosphere. To complete the repertoire they will perform the Orchestral Suite in D Major Op 49 composed by Saint Saens.

The Kelvin Ensemble was founded in 1991 by a group of students at Glasgow University, providing musicians from across the University the opportunity to perform classical music concerts under the direction of professional conductors. The orchestra initially specialised in chamber music, however, due to its success and popularity, the Ensemble now performs symphonic works in two concerts during each university semester to allow for the increasing number of musicians wishing to be involved with the group. Creating the chamber orchestra provided an opportunity to experience playing in a smaller ensemble, returning to the roots of the original Ensemble.

The chamber orchestra tour is self-funded by the students and audience attendance and support at the concerts is hugely appreciated. Each year they come together for an intensive couple of days rehearsing before beginning the tour. John Grant, the conductor, never ceases to inspire and guide the students to produce exceptional music. They warmly invite you to their concert at Memorial Chapel, University of Glasgow, Saturday 25th May 7.30pm. Tickets available on the door; £5/£10.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Kelvin Chamber Orchestra Concert are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
