Our 2015 season has now drawn to a close, after our very successful and enjoyable Choral Evensong yesterday with members of our wee sister choir RSCM Young Scottish Voices in Old Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church in Edinburgh’s Old Town.
Around 40 adults and 15 youngsters braved the rather low temperatures of the church (despite the heating being on, it had a battle on its hands against the cold Edinburgh chill!) and sang to a very appreciative congregation of almost 40 hardy souls.
Despite the temperature we enjoyed a warm welcome from Old Saint Paul’s, and we’re looking forward to returning there in the future. Perhaps we’ll schedule it for summer next time though!
The next time we meet as a choir is on February 6th 2016, when we make the journey south to Carlisle Cathedral to sing Choral Evensong at 5.30pm. Several choir members have already booked overnight accommodation in Carlisle, so it looks like it’s going to be a great social occasion as well as a musical one. Will it be warmer? Here’s hoping!
