On 24th November 2018 the Scottish Chamber Choir’s concert “To the Field of Stars” features Gabriel Jackson’s extraordinary work for choir, solo cello and percussion inspired by writings on the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, two pieces by Arvo Part and Bach’s Cello Suite No.2.
On 23rd March 2019 the choir performs the St John Passion by J S Bach at Canongate Kirk.
On 15th June 2019 the choir holds its 50th Anniversary Concert in Old St Paul’s. We hope that this concert will include a piece by Tom Harrold to be commissioned to mark this milestone. We await the result of a grant application for funding for this.
We hope you will join us to enjoy these concerts of beautiful music.
