Founded in 1994, Glasgow Chamber Choir has developed into one of Scotland’s finest, with a wide repertoire from the Renaissance to the present. A small ensemble of about 30 amateur singers, its current director is Michael Bawtree. Recent BBC radio engagements have included William Walton's Henry V Suite with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Sunday Worship live and Bryan Burnett's 'Get it On' show live on BBC Radio Scotland. Through touring Europe, the Choir has formed links, promoting exchanges, like that with the Dutch choir performing here.
The St. Joris Kamerkoor was founded in 1985 based in Amersfoort and is currently directed by Bas Ramselaar. They are focused on the performance of sacred music at a high amateur level. Members of the Glasgow Chamber Choir are delighted to be re-uniting with their friends in Spring 2017, when they undertake the third exchange together with concerts in Scotland and the Netherlands.
The programme for Dunblane includes great works by Parry (Blest Pair of Sirens), Howells (Take Him Earth for Cherishing), Finzi, Stanford, Vaughan Williams, Liszt, Bruckner and Bach.
