Glasgow Phoenix Choir Summer Concert
The Glasgow Phoenix Choir is delighted to be revisiting one of our favourite venues - Moncreiff Church for a summer concert. The Glasgow Phoenix Choir rose out of the ashes of the world-famous Glasgow Orpheus Choir and this year celebrates 122 years of choral excellence 72 years as the Glasgow Phoenix Choir and 50 years as the Glasgow Orpheus Choir. The choir is directed by our conductor, Cameron Murdoch. Cameron joined us in 1987 as Accompanist and Depute Conductor and is an Honours graduate in music from the University of Glasgow who also studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He regularly plays harpsichord and piano with various musical ensembles and performs throughout the British Isles. Cameron is also Organist and Choir Master of St. John's Renfield Church in Glasgow's West End. Many of the pieces in the current Phoenix repertoire were arranged by Cameron.
The choir is pleased to announce that our accompanist in this year's season of concerts will be Matthew McIlree. Matthew is a current regular accompanist with the choir. He is a recent graduate from the University of St. Andrews, where he completed both piano and organ scholarships alongside a degree in mathematics and computer science. He has been a multiple prize winner at both the Glasgow and Inverclyde music festivals, including twice winning the Glasgow Society of Organists' Trophy at the Glasgow open organ class; and three times winning the top piano award, as well the 2016 overall prize, in Inverclyde. He is now studying for his PhD in Computer Science at the University of Glasgow, alongside working freelance as a wedding musician and accompanist.
The Glasgow Phoenix Choir performs over 20 concerts per year and each involves a range of music from choral standards to new music and, in addition, we feature many delightful solo performances by choir members. Our latest postcard CD, recorded in St John's-Renfield Church, is available to purchase at concerts.
