Winter Concert

Congratulations to everyone for another fantastic concert on Saturday night.  The orchestra was on top form, and our soloist Graeme Brown was outstanding.   The concert was recorded, so hopefully CDs will be available in the near future for members to purchase.

CLIC-Sargent Christmas Concert

Congratulations also to the all the players who turned out for the annual CLIC Sargent Carol Concert at the GRCH on Friday night.  Once again, the GCO was a star of the show with some really fine playing throughout, while our party piece - the overture to A Secret Marriage - went down a storm with the large audience.

This was Ian McCrorie’s last concert as the CLIC Sargent conductor, so understandably the programme was primarily comprised of favourites from his reign. Next year, Alastair Digges will be the conductor, and it is hoped that more use will be made of the orchestra in accompanying the choral pieces.

The Glasgow Chamber Orchestra wishes all its friends, members and supporters a peaceful and happy Christmas, and a prosperous and musical New Year!

Conductor Peter Cynfryn Jones leads the GCO in full festive mode!
