  • Summer tour in Scotland

    Thank you to all the members who joined us for yet again another successful tour.

    The highlight we are sure for many will be performing on the Mercat Stage at the Edinburgh Fringe.  We were delighted to have an audience of some who already knew of us as well as many passers by who hadn't.  We also all thoroughly enjoiyed our concert at the very welcoming Church of Holy Rude in Stirling (as well as learning about all the history which has taken place there) and the experience of singing from the organ loft at Glasgow Cathedral for their Sunday morning Service.
