We wish you a Merry Christmas

SCO Bassoons Peter Whelan and Alison Green, joined by Graeme Brown, wish everyone a Merry Christmas with the late Kevin McCrae's Festive Medley for Bassoon Trio.

The original title for this work is Christmas for 3 Gruntpoles! Festive Medley for Bassoon Trio.  Kevin affectionately referred to bassoons as gruntpoles and we're delighted to be performing one of his compositions.

Special thanks to SCO Violin Fiona Alexander for sourcing the music and we hope Alexander and Hamish enjoy hearing their father's piece performed!

Season's Greetings and best wishes for the New Year from all of us at the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

The Orchestra has enjoyed a successful 2012, filled with recordings, touring and some great concerts - thank you to all our supporters.

2013 will be just as good as we get the year underway with Schubert’s two C major symphonies, stop by A Little Book of Monsters, and spend 'two weeks in Vienna' with SCO Principal Conductor Robin Ticciati in the spring. We hope you can join us!

Thanks so much for posting this, Merry Christmas to the Bassoonists and all at the SCO, from a former bassoonist (in my youth, must take it up again!).

Thank you bassoonists and all at the SCO for this little festive treat and for all the joy your music has brought us over the last year!   Looking forward immensely to your New Year concert at the Easterbrook Hall, Dumfries.  This will be our 4th year in attendance and it never fails to uplift us!

And a Merry Christmas to you too! It is a moot point whether there were actually 3 Wise Men, but we have certainly had 3 Merry Gruntpolers - lovely! Best wishes for a satisfying and successful 2013.

I was travelling to the United States a few years ago for winter holidays. I really wanted to experience the American life on Christmas, walk around the supermarkets to shop for the Christmas dinner, caroling, presents, walks around the time, a good restaurant, a Jackson Casino, you know, all the specific fun. I must say it was the most beautiful journey of my entire life.

What's more, although my introduction to QM was through New Age books, the more I read, the more intrigued I became and then when I actually started to read some *actual* material written by people who *actually* spent their adult lifetimes studying QM I found a theory that was, in reality, far more elegant and beautiful than the people who invoke it to give their fantasies a patina of scientific legitimacy. paleo Nuked it for up to 2 mins, the max allowed as noted in the box.
