"Beethoven's revolutionary third symphony - performed in a new reduced orchestration for eleven players. Intended to show this extraordinary work from a different perspective both in scale and context, the performance will include a narrative containing interesting facts and anecdotes, as well as offering some insight into the work's creation and the composer's life."https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/eroica-reimagined-tickets-85777872927

Glasgow Culture Vulture Group visited on Sunday 27th May.
"The MacKintosh Club is such a great place, that I arranged to take a group of 20 friends from the 'Glasgow Culture Vultures' group. We were all thoroughly impressed by the club. Nicola and Bruce's passion for the club had shown through. Perhaps it makes a difference to have the owners of the club rather than someone else doing a 9-5 job. There was very much an extra level of customer care and friendliness. We were all welcomed, and everything was run and organised in a very professional manner.
It was great that they opened the club, on a Sunday, just for us. Excellent quality of coffee, served in a cafetiere, and yummy cakes was served. Everyone in the group very much appreciated Bruce's talk on the building, that wasn't expected, and was an added bonus.
It's a venue with unlimited potential and could suit any needs. The baby grand piano and the size and shape of the room must deliver very fine acoustics. With plenty of natural light coming into the room, it allowed us to see, and appreciate the two current art exhibitions. It is a very charaterful and atmospheric building and one where someone could easily become inspired in"Michael Wilson, Chairman, Glasgow Culture Vulture's
