Glasgow Phoenix Choir is one of the foremost and longest established choral groups in Scotland, and indeed, the UK. The choir today is a mixed voice SATB choir of approximately 95 singing members ranging from teenagers to octogenarians, several non-singing Associate Members, and many Patrons.
Founded in 1951 when members of the disbanded Glasgow Orpheus Choir decided to continue the then 50 year old tradition begun in 1901, it continues to perform throughout the British Isles, Europe and the North American Continent.
With a library of over 1000 titles and over 30 albums recorded, the choir's extensive and varied repertoire includes music from West End/Broadway shows and "easy listening" numbers, through to oratorio, opera, chamber music, and sacred music from all the major composers and, of course, Scottish song.
The choir has recorded many programs for television and radio, including the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall and even an episode of the BBC Scotland comedy "Still Game" and has also accompanied Michael Crawford during his UK tour and has performed in many concerts for the Gubbay Organisation. Today the choir continues to perform at numerous Arts and Music Festivals in the UK, Europe, Canada and USA.
