What choir members have to say ...

As one whose musical education from schooldays was scant, I was delighted to find that enjoyable weekly practices under the guidance of our enthusiastic (and often entertaining) MD have culminated in performances shared with impressive orchestras, wind and brass bands and fine professional soloists. What a privilege! For the past eight years I have become more than acquainted with Handel, Haydn, Elgar, Puccini and Rutter - not to mention the friendly folks of Milngavie who are cosmopolitan enough to welcome Glaswegians and (Clyde)Bankies like me into their choir.  Kate Harrison

I attended a concert three years ago and found myself in the choir the following week. It's a very friendly choir. Ken Howkins

I left the choir after having my daughter and then had a spell living overseas with my husband's job. On returning to Milngavie I had at times thought of returning to the choir, but it took me six years to do it. Comments like "I wish I had done it earlier" come to mind! I had forgotten how much pleasure and fulfilment I get from singing and being part of a group. I'm really glad to be back singing, especially pieces that I never thought I was capable of. I was made to feel most welcome again by Renton, the choirmaster, and choir members. In some ways it felt as if I had never left. So if you are thinking of returning to the choir, go on: believe me, you will be very glad you did.  Carol Maitland

Not quite a founder member, I have enjoyed the wide range of music we have performed, from My Fair Lady to Mozart; Handel to Hammerstein, and much more besides.  Fraser Gold

For me the choir came along at just the right time. We had just moved to Milngavie and I was looking for an opportunity to resume singing for pleasure. And that is the key to Milngavie choir - we sing for pleasure and if, in the process, we also give pleasure to others, then so much the better. Grahame Lawson
