Music for a Summer’s Evening
GCO in Choral Mode
Congratulations to everyone who took part in the Kelvin Choir concert on Sunday 14 May, in Hyndland Parish Church. A reduced orchestra (strings, single wind and timps) accompanied the Choir in Puccini’s Messa di Gloria, while the strings provided the backing to Vaughan William’s Five Mystical Songs. The programme was warmly received by a very appreciative audience.
