The Fifth Anniversary Gala Concert will take place in the glorious surroundings of the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum on 27 May 2017. The choir will be performing Maurice Duruflé’s “Requiem”, and will be joined by professional mezzo-soprano, Amanda MacLeod – who will sing the “Pie Jesu”. The choir will also be accompanied by the Rogue Orchestra, for what promises to be a stunning performance.

The programme also features works by Sir James MacMillan, CBE, and two world premières, including a work by Scottish composer Shona Mackay, written for the choir through the Adopt a Composer scheme which is funded by the PRS for Music Foundation and the Philip and Dorothy Green Trust, and run by Making Music in association with BBC Radio 3 and Sound and Music.

The choir will also be premièring “Light Through Tall Windows”, a new choral work written in response to the fire which damaged the Mackintosh Building at The Glasgow School of Art in May 2014.
