Our Virtual Rehearsals, held over Zoom,
have been a great success, and thanks must
go to our conductor Robert Baxter for his
enthusiastic and insightful leadership.
To round off the session, we now propose to
hold an informal Virtual Concert on
Tuesday 8 December! The idea is, roughly,
that the first half will comprise solo
performances by members, while the
second half will be given over to a
performance of Beethoven’s 1st Symphony.
This latter will be led by Robert, with
members playing their individual parts
along with a recording of the symphony
which Robert will chose and broadcast.
The evening will kick off at 7.30pm, and
details of the Zoom login will be sent out
beforehand. Details of pieces that
members would like to play should be
emailed to Wendy so that a programme can
be put together.
The Glasgow Chamber Orchestra is an
amateur orchestra based in Glasgow, and
has been making music here for over 50
years. We give 3 main concerts each year
in March, June and November.
You can find out lots more about the
orchestra and its music in the pages of this
web-site. Hopefully, you will be
encouraged to come along to a concert, or
if you are a musician, you may be
interested in joining us.

Christmas & New Year
Greetings from the GCO
With our Christmas concerts cancelled, and
our Spring concert very much in the
balance, the Committee is busy planning
ahead for a programme of rehearsals to
start in the new year. We will commence
with zoom rehearsals led by Robert Baxter,
on the same basis as this session, with the
first of these being on Tuesday 12 January.
Details of which orchestra sections are
involved each night, and the programme to
be played, will be issued in due course.
