Breakfast with Archibald Simpson

Breakfast in the local Wetherspoons pub, an enjoyable day of rehearsing, leading towards an excellent Choral Evensong followed by an equally excellent fluid-replacement session back in the Wetherspoons made for a delightful day for RSCM Scottish Voices in Aberdeen at the weekend.

We were a little low on numbers, with a couple of sopranos having to boost the alto part, but notwithstanding that it was a good number of the choir who made it to the furthest north we've travelled as yet in the choir's short existence.

The welcome and hospitality shown to us by St Andrew's Episcopal Cathedral was second to none, and we'll definitely make a return trip there in the future.

New page added to our site

The keen eyed amongst you will have noticed that we now have a new page on the sidebar on the right hand side listing all our future diary dates and venues with as much detail as is available at any given point, which will be updated on a rolling basis.

So rather than have to scroll down and find the once-per-year post listing a new season's events if you want to find out where you can come to hear RSCM Scottish Voices sing, just look at the "Future Services and Events" page and it'll all be there in date order.  If I remember to update it!
