Glasgow Phoenix Choir has a new conductor. Cameron J Murdoch, will take up the conductor’s post at the start of our 69th. season in August 2019 following Marilyn J Smith’s retiral after 28 years at the helm. Cameron has been with the choir for over 30 years as our Accompanist and Depute Conductor and we are all very much looking forward to working with him as he takes the choir forward and offer him our warmest congratulations on his appointment as Conductor and Music Director.
On Friday 26 April 2019 at our gala concert, ‘Thank You For The Music, in Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, our conductor, Marilyn J Smith said farewell to our loyal and supportive audiences who have followed the choir throughout her 28 year tenure as conductor. Marilyn is stepping down at the end of our current season, with only two more concerts to go, in Govan on 1 June and Largs on 9 June, before she leaves us. The choir also had the opportunity , in the Royal Concert Hall, to say to Marilyn, ‘Thank You For The Music’ of the last 28 years.
