A full house (even the gallery was occupied this year), our superb guests, cellist Christian Elliot and piano/organ accompanist Michael Harris, a lovely programme of old and new carols, and wonderful audience feedback. We even inspired one young audience member to consider joining his school choir!
Add to this the announcement that Cadenza helped to raise just short of £1400 at the annual Erskine Christmas Service two days earlier and what more could any choir wish for? (apart from more playtime on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM!) Read more »

‘tis the season to be on the radio, it seems! Alan Bullard’s Scots Nativity, track 4 on Cadenza’s recent contemporary collection of carols Bright Star, was played on BBC Radio 3′s Breakfast show this morning. You can listen to the broadcast as often as you like up until Friday 20th December via this link to the BBC iPlayer – skip to around 1h 8min in to hear us. A fan of the choir, Ian Brockbank, requested the track and provided a short introduction to the CD and why Scots Nativity in particular stands out for him. Clemency Burton-Hill referred to Bright Star as “proving very popular with lots of you” in reference to the number of listeners who had been in touch requesting tracks from it.

Ticket sales for Cadenza’s annual Christmas concert in Polwarth Parish Church are going very well, to the point that we are on-course for a complete sell out! So, if you are looking to come along on Saturday 14 December we recommend you get in touch as soon as you can to ensure you are not disappointed. We’ve got a stocking-full of traditional favourites and some new pieces to look forward to, a selection box of a capella and accompanied pieces with Michael Harris, our organist for the evening, as well as a cracker of a ‘cello soloist, the talented Christian Elliot. Book now for the full five course roast dinner, or risk the horror of dried-up cold turkey sandwiches… [That's enough bad Christmas analogies - Ed.]
