After a lovely time in Peebles, our next outing is on Saturday 31st May 2014 when to
celebrate the fifth year of our choir's existence, we will be joined by
RSCM Young Scottish Voices, and members of our English sister choirs
RSCM Voices North, RSCM Voices West, and RSCM Voices South in a celebratory Choral Evensong in Paisley Abbey at 4pm
The following is from our Musical Director Frikki Walker, who is also Director of Music at St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral in Glasgow, in which a fair number of RSCM Scottish Voices members also sing:
The famous choir of St Mary’s Cathedral, Glasgow has vacancies for TWO TENORS.
Requirements are: a good voice, some choral experience, a reasonable standard of musicianship and a sense of humour!
Coming up in the next few months is a week’s residency at Lincoln Cathedral, a Choir Concert, and the recording of a CD of music written for St Mary’s.
We are a voluntary choir currently comprising 20 choristers (boys and girls) and about 30 or so adults. We sing two services on Sundays and have a rehearsal on Thursday evenings. Music covers a huge range, from Medieval to present day, and we do regular broadcasts, concerts and recordings, all to a very high standard.
We are also a very sociable group, and there is much merriment and socialising to be had, too!
Recently we have had several young singers going on to study music at University, many gaining Choral Scholarships to Cambridge, Durham, Aberdeen, Dundee and Glasgow Universities, and others have gained places to Music College or Conservatoires.
