Two hours of sublime music from one of Scotland’s foremost choral ensembles.

Could there be a more wonderful end to a concert enjoyed by all – performers and audience, not to mention our critic, who rewarded us with another Highly recommended show review. And we had another full house too!

The full text can be found on our Reviews page, as well as on the Fringe Review website.

A selection of the comments received so far from our audience:
For some of my friends last night was their first experience of live “serious” choral music…and all were blown away by the beautiful sounds created by choir, orchestra and piano

An amazing concert, so beautiful and moving

Richard Beauchamp playing Beethoven Choral Fantasy was just phenomenal

I greatly enjoyed last night’s sparkling concert

An amazing concert in stunning surroundings

Very professionally delivered

A MASTERCLASS of a concert. It is without doubt one of the best sounds from a choir, I’ve heard in a long time…just breathtaking

A brilliant evening – one Saturday night I won’t forget

One audience member declared “Gebet” her new favourite piece of music, closely followed by the Cherubini “Agnus Dei”. She was almost moved to tears by both of them.

And the conclusion of our reviewer?
An uplifting, moving and high quality rendition of some complex music. I’ve already put their 2017 Fringe date in my diary. So should you.

It’s Saturday 26th August 2017!
