Each of the players in our fabulous orchestra specialises in opera, but that isn’t where their talents end. Our annual concert series is a regular highlight in Glasgow’s musical calendar and the final two concerts of the season give you a chance to see the orchestra performing music you wouldn’t necessarily hear in the theatre.
With a programme that makes the most of the wonderful acoustics of the venue, our April concert features Mozart’s magnificent ‘Linz’ Symphony and Shostakovich’s vibrant Symphony No.9. Plus, following the centenary year of Britten’s birth, we celebrate his extraordinary music with his lovely Suite on English Folk Tunes. Rising star Daniel Cohen conducts.
Conducted by acclaimed British conductor James Burton, our June concert features the great Russian composer Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite, Vaughan Williams’ serene Symphony No.5 and the world premiere of Composer in Residence Gareth Williams’ the song, the stars, the blossom.
