Music on a summer’s evening with Jordanhill School’s talented musicians and singers
Members of All Saints joined more than 100 pupils, parents and performers from Jordanhill School on June 14 for a summer’s evening of music.
The concert was a prelude to the School’s annual show in its own large venue, and head of music Mrs Karen Gilmour told the audience she welcomed the opportunity to enable some slightly nervous pupils to test their mettle in more intimate surroundings.
“We would like to thank All Saints for their continuing support for Jordanhill School and the opportunity to perform here,” she said. “We have a big hall in the school which can be intimidating for some of the performers. This church is a great venue – a beautiful building with wonderful acoustics.”
- Bach Wedding cantata ‘Weichet nur’ with soprano Margaret Ravalde;
- Vivaldi concerto in B Minor for four violins;
- Boismortier sonata in E Minor for three flutes and continuo;
- Handel Concerto Grosso Op 3 Nr 4b.
Tickets cost £8 (£5 concessions), and proceeds will go to Hospices of Hope, the leading palliative care charity in South Eastern Europe).
The Telemann Ensemble was founded by Leslie Macleod and Neil Gillies in 1977 to perform works by Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767) and other neglected baroque composers as well as masters such as Bach, Handel and Vivaldi.[note color=”#cdd9ea”]Special Evensong
All Saints made its West End Festival debut on Sunday, June 2, 2013, with a special sung Evensong marking the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation. We were joined by the Jordanhill Liturgical Choir. Directed by Alan Tavener, this ecumenical choir was formed in 2011 and draws its members from All Saints, Jordanhill Parish Church of Scotland, Our Lady of Perpetual Succour Roman Catholic Church, and other neighbouring churches. Nearly 60 people attended, and a retiring collection raised £108 for the Storehouse foodbank.
