|"The SCO Chorus was on outstanding form."|
|**** The Financial Times (Mozart Così fan tutte, October 2012)|
|“The night belonged to the SCO Chorus for its shattering and profoundly moving performance of the Requiem. This glorious chorus …. sang the work from memory, a terrific feat."|
|**** The Herald (Mozart Requiem, May 2011)|
The Scottish Chamber Orchestra Chorus (Chorusmaster Gregory Batsleer) has built a reputation as one of Scotland’s finest and most versatile choirs.
Members enjoy a unique opportunity to perform with one of the world’s leading chamber orchestras, and to work regularly with international conductors including Robin Ticciati, Olari Elts, Joseph Swensen, Yannick Nézet-Seguin, Richard Egarr, John Storgårds and Emmanuel Krivine.
The Chorus appears regularly with the Orchestra in Scotland’s major cities. Recent concerts have covered a wide range of music including Mozart Requiem, Berlioz Tristia, Bach Christmas Oratorio and Beethoven Symphony No 9.
The Chorus also appears on its own in a capella repertoire (most recently performing Bach and Poulenc), and has given several acclaimed performances on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Recordings include Mozart Requiem (SCO/Linn), Die Entführung aus dem Serail (Telarc), and La Clemenza di Tito (Deutsche Grammophon), all with Sir Charles Mackerras; Bellini I Capuleti ed i Montecchi with Donald Runnicles (Teldec); Rossini Zelmira with Maurizio Benini (Opera Rara) and the premiere recording of Edward Harper Symphony No 2 with Garry Walker (Delphian).
The Chorus welcomes new members to all sections. Find out more about how to join.
