Glasgow Choral Union Suggest updates

The RSNO Chorus has evolved from a choir formed in Glasgow in 1843 for the specific purpose of giving a complete performance of Handel's Messiah in Scotland for the first time.

This body became the Glasgow Choral Union, and after working for many seasons with the Scottish Orchestra, its association was made more formal. Its name has changed from SNO Chorus to RSO Chorus, eventually taking its present form. It also maintains a separate existence, and has made many foreign tours, including visits in Europe to Germany, Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands and Czech Republic. Further afield, the Chorus has visited Israel, Hong Kong and Australia.

Within the UK, it appears frequently in other Scottish cities as well as Belfast, and makes regular  visits to London for the BBC Proms.
