Concerts & More - MUSIC

Music is a great way to celebrate faith! AGAP has worked with St Mungo’s Music, the Schola Glasguensis, and the world famous musical composer, James MacMillan to plan and raise awareness of events. Musicians from a variety of styles (classical, traditional, jazz, folk, Christian, Gospel, choral and plainchant) have contributed to the cultural life of the Archdiocese, with the support of AGAP and we have created opportunities for new acts to appear in Church venues alongside well-known performers.

An impressive array of musical performers have contributed to our work, including: singer-songwriter, Eddi Reader; Australian hymn-writer and minstrel, Peter Kearney; Polish concert pianist, Aleksander Kudajczyk; the Cross Border Band (a traditional music group); Evangelical Christian pop singer-songwriter, Garry Brotherston; Schola Glasguensis; University of Glasgow Madrigirls; Clyde Consort; UNEXPECTED! (a new group of singers and musicians from RSAMD); Capella Nova; University of Strathclyde Chamber Choir; Mezzo Soprano, Louise MacDonald and pianist Graeme McNaught; American Singer-Songwriter, Kitty Cleveland; Evangelical choir, Father’s Song; Saxophonist, Steve Nelson; Singer-songwriter Martin Jones; singer-songwriter John Wilson.

“Pilgrim”, produced by musician Erne Parkin brought together a variety of music acts for a concert at Saint Andrew’s in the Square, bringing to life the Beatitudes in a well-known secular arts venue as part of LENTfest 2008.
