If you’d like to join Glasgow’s flagship choir, we’d love to hear from you!
What are the benefits of singing with us?
We’re excited to announce the City of Glasgow Chorus 2019-20 Season Programme! We’ve chosen a wide range of music to stimulate, challenge and have fun along the way. It will be an exciting time to be part of the Chorus. We’d love you to join us!
24th November 2019 – @ City Halls with the Orchestra of Scottish Opera
We’re singing the Italian Masters: We’ll be able to let our operatic instincts flow with Puccini’s Messa di Gloria. And, we’ve unearthed a Cherubini classic which we don’t think has been performed in Scotland before. Beethoven regarded Cherubini as the greatest of his contemporaries – so it is special to be singing both this year! You can read a short review of a recording of this piece which highlights that it will be a technically interesting piece for us to perform.
21st May 2020 – @ City Halls with the BBC Symphony Orchestra
Beethoven’s Symphony No 9 in D minor
We’re delighted to have been invited to perform at the BBC SSO’s Beethoven Roots Festival. The BBC SSO will perform Beethoven’s 9 symphonies, and the music which inspired him, in 5 days at the City Halls. We’ll be singing Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, which includes the iconic Ode to Joy. We’ll be performing with the Chorus of Scottish Opera and we’ll be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 too!
6th June 2020- @ Kingsburgh Sanctuary, Hyndland Rd, Glasgow
Glasgow Mozart Mass in C Minor
The C Minor Mass is often referred to as Mozart’s ‘Great Mass’ and considered one of his greatest works. What a finale to a fabulous season! Christmas We’ll be spreading Christmas cheer and sparkle at the ‘Christmas Cracker’ on Sunday, 22nd December with the Orchestra of Scottish Opera and ‘Christmas at the Musicals’ on Sunday 15th December with the RSNO.
🎶 Here’s to great singing experiences in 2019-20! 🎶
We have a lot to offer in return for your commitment and musicianship. All we ask is that you have a good voice, can follow your part in a vocal score with reasonable proficiency and preferably have previous choral experience.
We are happy to accept new members at any point throughout the year. At the moment, we have vacancies for sopranos, tenors and basses. Our alto section is currently full.
We have a wide range of age groups and we’d like to welcome singers from all communities and backgrounds.
If you would like to become part of this successful and ambitious ensemble, please get in touch
We rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at the University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow’s city centre.
Entry is by the James Weir Building, which is situated halfway down Montrose Street.
To find our rehearsal Room RC512, go up one flight of stairs (or to Level 2 if you take the lift), turn left and left again into the Royal College building (signposted Engineering Faculty Office). Follow the corridor all the way along towards the front of the building, then continue following the corridor to the right, past the big main double staircase. The entrance to RC512 is then on the left, a couple of doors past the stairs.
