About us

All our members are in the choir because we simply enjoy singing.  None of us are professional singers. We come from all sections of the community - people at home bringing up the kids, retired people, working people such as teachers, students, etc. Geographically we come from Milngavie, Bearsden, Strathblane, other areas in and around Glasgow. We don't necessarily know how to read music, although some ability to follow notes on a musical score does help.

Over the years we have brought some major choral works to Milngavie through our spring concerts: Mendelssohn's Elijah; Mozart's Mass in C Minor; Brahms' Requiem; and many more.  Other concerts have struck a lighter note: Strauss's operetta, Die Fledermaus; Bizet's Carmen; and a programme of Scottish songs give a flavour of the range. Our annual Christmas concert is always a huge success and receives an enthusiastic reception from a capacity crowd. Click here to see some of the music we've performed over the years.

We have had the privilege of being joined by prestigious soloists and orchestral players for many of these concerts and have enjoyed the support of appreciative audiences - some of them have even been inspired to join the choir!

Several times a year, we are welcomed by residential homes and other local groups to perform selections of carols or light music; always thoroughly enjoyable occasions.

Why not come and see for yourself what the choir can bring to your life?
