About The Spire Concert Series

Listed Under Music Events

The Spire concert series will hold Saturday lunchtime concerts in the autumn of 2019. Renfield St Stephen's Church is to amalgamate with Kelvingrove Anderston Church to become Glasgow St Andrews West - we've called the new series The Spire concert series. Formerly known as the Sphere concert series.

Tickets will be on sale from 12 noon and entitle bearer to 10% discount in the Oasis Café on the day of concert.

Saturday 12th October: Sound Collective Scotland at the Spire
The Spire concert series kicks off its Autumn 2019 Saturday lunchtime series with Sound Collective Scotland - a professional, Scotland-based, flexible chamber ensemble that explores and performs a large variety of music, from solo to chamber orchestra size.
Featured musicians are Nikola Kyosev/flute, Clara Lafuente Garcia/oboe, Rebecca Whitener/clarinet, Georgi Boev/French horn, Gillian Horn/bassoon and Silviya Mihaylova/piano.
Their programme:
Debussy - Prelude à l'après-midi d'un faune for flute, clarinet and piano
Beethoven - Trio for flute, bassoon and piano, Wo0 37
Poulenc - Sextet

Saturday 19th October: The Argyll Quartet at the Spire
The Spire concert series continues its Autumn 2019 Saturday lunchtime series with the Argyll String Quartet.
Their programme:
Purcell: Pavane & Chaconne
Mozart: String Quartet No 14 “Spring”
Lekeu: Molto Adagio
Puccini: Crisantemi

Saturday 2nd November: North American Guitar Trio
The Spire concert series continues its Autumn 2019 Saturday lunchtime series with the North American Guitar Trio - a fresh ensemble made from some of the most exciting emerging classical guitarists across North America. Members David Steinhardt (California), Tim Beattie (Toronto), and Evan Dim (Niagara) all recently started their studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland under the tutelage of Allan Neave and Matthew McAllister.

Saturday 9th November: Ian Watt Classical Guitarist
Classical guitarist Ian Watt plays music by Milan, Rodrigo, McGuire, Turina and Albeniz in the Spire concert series. One of our most talented players, Ian's performance will be further enhanced by the wonderful acoustic in the church.

Saturday 16th November: Ethelinda - extracts from a forgotten opera
The opera Ethelinda was written by Mildred Jessup (née Bowes Lyon) and first performed in Florence in 1894 to rapturous applause. The appreciative audience was stunned to discover it had been written by a woman in her twenties. Sadly Mildred did not live beyond the age of 28, and never returned to her home at Glamis Castle, or knew she was the great-aunt of our Queen.
Extracts will be performed today by soprano Catriona Clark, tenor Matthew Kimble, baritones Francis Church and Douglas Nairne, accompanied by Derek Clark. An introduction will be given by Dr Tommy Fowler, who re-discovered the piano score, and a narration linking the extracts will be given by Daisy Henderson of Classical Musicians Scotland. As in all good operas, there's a heroine, a hero, a man betrayed and a baddie!

Saturday 23rd November: ADLibitum with double bassist Nikita Naumov
Andrea Gajic/violin, Djordje Gajic/classical accordion and Nikita Naumov/principal double bass (Scottish Chamber Orchestra) present a lunchtime programme as part of the Spire concert series. The programme will feature works by Bottesini, Bach, Lauber, Piazzolla and Sarasate among others, played by three virtuosi.

Saturday 7th December: Russkaya Cappella
Scotland's Russian choir will complete the Autumnn Spire concert series with their own inimitable style.
