We have a vast music library and have been fortunate to receive some fantastic pieces of music from several talented arrangers.
Our library has hundreds of pieces of music; ranging from classical music to popular music, from easy listening tunes to TV/film themes, from military marches to hymn tunes.
Our concert programmes are varied are designed to suit all tastes.
For example, our collection of Classical Music includes items such as Shostakovich's "Folk Dances", "New Baroque Suite" by Ted Huggens.
We also play a substantial number of Classical Overtures, mainly for competition purposes, but often selected movements are played in concert. In the past we have played pieces as challenging as Mussorgsky's "Pictures At An Exhibition" and "Night On The Bare Mountain". Other overtures played recently include Rossini's "William Tell", "Oberon" by Carl von Weber and Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherezade".
We understand that not everyone enjoys a heavy programme of classical music so "lighter" pieces play just as significant a part in the orchestra's repertoire:
A selection Scottish music often features in our concerts; including a piece called "A Nicht Wi' Burns" which showcases the works of Rabbie Burns, "The Rose of Kelvingrove" and the classic "Highland Cathedral" all of which prove popular at concerts.
Our movie themes are so varied there's bound to be one you'd recognise. "Concierto de Aranjeuz" from Brassed Off, "Gabriel's Oboe" from The Mission are just two great examples. We also have in our playlist theme music from films such as "Schindler's List", "Braveheart", "The Sound of Music", "Pirates of the Carribean" and "Les Misérables".
Our concert playlist also features some classic Military Marches, including Strauss's "Radetzky March", Sousa's "Stars & Stripes" and Fucik's "Florentine March" to name but a few.
We are also able to provide a wide selection of Christmas Music throughout the Festive Season.
