Aberdeen Chamber Orchestra:
Originally formed in 1982 by a group of friends, the Aberdeen Chamber Orchestra has been performing in the city for almost 40 years. The orchestra has grown in size and continues to attract the finest local talent to its ranks.
Guided by experienced conductor, Gareth John, and leader, Jean Fletcher, the orchestra began to reach beyond chamber music and into symphonic repertoire, now regularly performing large-scale works. In recent years, they have performed Beethoven's Choral Symphony at the Aberdeen Music Hall, the Emperor Piano Concerto with Nigel Clayton, a semi-staged production of Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream and Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade. The popularity of their diverse and engaging concerts, many of which have sold out, has enabled collaboration performances such as with Con Anima choir for Handel's Messiah in 2019.
