The Glasgow Phoenix Choir, sponsored by Co-op Funeralcare, rose out of the ashes of the world-famous Glasgow Orpheus Choir and this year celebrates a total of 116 years of choral excellence. The choir flourishes under the guidance of our conductor Marilyn J Smith MBE and Cameron Murdoch, accompanist and depute conductor. The choir performs over 20 concerts per year and each involves a range of music from choral standards to new music and, in addition, we feature many delightful solo performances by choir members. St Conan’s Kirk, is located on Loch Awe and was established as a chapel of ease by the Campbells of Innis Chonain. An eccentric blend of church styles, from ancient Roman to Norman, it is built of local stone and consists of a nave and chancel, with the chancel-stalls being canopied. The church has recently been voted one of Scotland’s best buildings of the last century but repairs to the roof are required to protect it from the ravages of the Argyll weather.
