Congratulations to the GCO contingent that ably supported the recent Kelvin Choir concert at St John’s Renfield church. There was considerable praise for the orchestra’s quality and standard of playing from conductor, choir and audience, so well done everyone!
Kelvin Choir Spring Concert
Rehearsal Schedule
Our final concert for this season again features the trumpet, but this time in stereo! The Vivaldi concerto for two trumpets was his one any only concerto for this instrument but is full of bright fanfares and fast interplay between the instruments. Opening our concert is JC Bach’s Sinfonia in B Flat, a bright and cheerful work befitting the (hopefully) summer setting of our final concert. The Brahms Haydn Variations is a set of variations based on the well known St Anthony Chorale theme originally attributed to Haydn, but now thought not to be his work at all! Eight variations and a Finale follow this theme, each displaying a different musical style, and culminating in a Finale which itself comprises a theme and set of variations. The big work in our second half is really by Haydn, and is his well-known ‘Clock’ symphony No 101, named as such for the tick-tock style of the second movement. We hope you will enjoy our concert, once again in the beautiful surroundings of Sherbrooke Mosspark Church.
The popular GCO Chamber Music concert will this year be ‘playing away from home’ as we travel down the M74 to the lovely village of Moffat. This is the home of our orchestra leader, Hazel McDonald, and the concert will be held in Upper Annandale Parish Church on Saturday 8 June, at 7.30pm. The programme will once again be an eclectic mix of classical and more light- hearted pieces, played by soloists, duos, trios, quartets and ensembles gathered from the orchestra and friends.
