Bearsden church to host concert

Fotheringay Chamber Orchestra will give a concert in aid of the British Red Cross Defibrillator Appeal at Bearsden Baptist Church on April 26, at 6.30pm.

The concert features a virtuoso work for clarinet by Rossini, a symphony by Haydn and a rare piece by an eighteenth century Scottish earl.

The soloist in Rossini’s Introduction, Theme and Variations for Clarinet and Orchestra will be Alex South.

Alex studied science and philosophy at Cambridge and Glasgow universities before his musical training with John Cushing and Michael Huntriss at RSAMD.

He is a founder member of the Scottish Clarinet Quartet and is known for his virtuoso ability and wide range of repertoire from classical to avant-garde.

The British Red Cross Defibrillator Appeal helps to purchase new vehicle-mounted defibrillators in our area. Entry is by donation at the door. Tea and coffee will be served afterwards. All welcome.
