About Glasgow Phoenix Choir Concert in aid of Lepra

The Glasgow Phoenix Choir rose out of the ashes of the world-famous Glasgow Orpheus Choir and this year celebrates 119 years of choral excellence – 69 years as the Glasgow Phoenix Choir and 50 years as the Glasgow Orpheus Choir. The choir is directed by our new conductor, Cameron Murdoch.

Cameron joined us in 1987 as Accompanist and Depute Conductor and has been appointed Conductor and Musical Director to succeed Marilyn Smith on her retiral from the post. Cameron is an Honours graduate in music from the University of Glasgow and also studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He regularly plays harpsichord and piano with various musical ensembles and performs throughout the British Isles. He is also an organist of note and his playing can be heard on the soundtrack of the film ‘Chocolat’. Cameron has broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and has appeared as accompanist in BBC Television’s “Young Musician of the Year”. He has previously been Musical Director of Glasgow Opera Group and Conductor of the Clydebank District Choir. Cameron teaches piano at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He is also Organist and Choir Master of St. John’s Renfield Church in Glasgow’s West End. Many of the pieces in the current Phoenix repertoire are arranged by Cameron and the choir is looking forward immensely to the start of our 69th season when Cameron takes up the conductor’s baton.

Lepra is UK-based international charity working to beat leprosy. This disease affects the most vulnerable people in the world, causing life-changing disabilities. More than 600 people are diagnosed and start treatment each day, over 50 of these are children. Due to fear and lack of knowledge, there are over 3 million people across the world living with undiagnosed leprosy and every day the disease causes more damage to their health, livelihood and future, but there is a cure. Lepra works directly with communities in Bangladesh, India and Mozambique to find, diagnose and rehabilitate people affected by leprosy. Through raising awareness, pushing for early detection and reducing prejudice we support people so they can transform their lives.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Phoenix Choir Concert in aid of Lepra are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
