The Glasgow Phoenix Choir is delighted to be performing a concert in the Freemasons’ Hall, where we always receive a fabulous welcome. The Glasgow Phoenix Choir rose out of the ashes of the world-famous Glasgow Orpheus Choir and this year celebrates 120 years of choral excellence – 70 years as the Glasgow Phoenix Choir and 50 years as the Glasgow Orpheus Choir.
This concert will be in support of Prostate Cancer; tickets can be obtained from the venue or online through the choir's website at http://www.phoenixchoir.org/
The choir is directed by our conductor, Cameron Murdoch. Cameron joined us in 1987 as Accompanist and Depute Conductor and is an Honours graduate in music from the University of Glasgow who also studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He regularly plays harpsichord and piano with various musical ensembles and performs throughout the British Isles. Cameron 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 were arranged by Cameron.
The choir is pleased to announce that our accompanist in this year’s season of Christmas concerts will be Gordon Cree.,the well-known, multi-talented Scottish, entertainer. We are honoured that he has agreed to join us for this series of concerts.
The Glasgow Phoenix 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.
Location: Freemasons Hall, 96 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 3DH
