And finally………  

As summer hopefully approaches, our final musical event, before we take a much deserved musical break, is our popular Chamber Music Concert which this year takes place on Saturday 22 June 2019, at our usual venue of Martyrs’ Sandyford Church, Montgomery Road, Paisley, PA3 4LQ.

Featuring a potpourri of solos, duets, trios, quartets and ensembles from the ranks of the GCO and friends, this is a relaxing and enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours on a summer Saturday evening.  The Concert starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £5, available at the door on the day.

Four cellists from the Glasgow Chamber Orchestra, together with a guest soprano, will present a programme of well-known favourites. As well as music ranging from opera to Scots songs, there's a chance to "name that famous cello tune" in a fun arrangement of ‘Home on the Range’.


Catch the cellos at Martyrs' Sandyford Church, Montgomery Road, Paisley PA3 4LQ on
Sunday 16 June at 2.30pm.  Tickets cost £5 and are available at the door on the day.
