In an exciting development, Glasgow Chamber Choir combines forces with the St Joris Kamerkoor from Amersfoort in the Netherlands for four concerts in March and May 2011. The St Joris Kamerkoor, directed by Bach specialist Bas Ramselaar, is almost exactly the same size as Glasgow Chamber Choir, and performs a similarly diverse repertoire of music from across the centuries. For these joint concerts, there will be a feast of music for double choir by Bach, Brahms, Bingham, Howells, Harris, Rheinberger and Bruckner in addition to Zoltan Kodaly's magnificent Laudes Organi and music from Holland and Scotland.
