A huge Thank you! to the wonderful audience who packed out Polwarth Parish Church, overflowing into the Gallery, last night.
If your cheers at the end of the concert were anything to go by, you clearly enjoyed both our fabulous young soloist (an amazing young singer, who will go far! It was a real privilege to share the stage with her) and our own wide-ranging programme of Christmas music – everything from “Mozart” to Maxwell Davies.
We wish you and all our Friends and followers a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year! And we hope to see you all again at our 2017 concerts

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!
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!
