A Requiem for Rod is a ‘come and sing’ Mozart Requiem will take place in St Mary’s Cathedral on Saturday 26 October 2013. The performance will be conducted by Iain McCrorie, a close friend of Roderick’s and a highly respected choral conductor and a movement will be conducted by Fergus MacLeod, one of this year’s Award winners. There will also be a quartet of distinguished soloists, led by soprano, Rachel Hynes.
We hope that as many singers as possible will come along on the day.

The Roderick Brydon Memorial Trust has been established in memory of one of Scotland’s most influential musicians, Roderick Brydon, 1939-2010. who played a significant role in the creation of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the development of Scottish Opera.
The trust aims to honour Roderick’s contribution to music in Scotland by awarding grants in his name to student repetiteurs and conductors. £4000 has already been received from personal donations and the first awards were presented in the summer of 2013.
