Venue: Freemasons’ Hall, 96 George Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3DH
The Glasgow Phoenix Choir is delighted to be performing the third of its Christmas concerts in a favourite venue. 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. This concert is in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.
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.
