The Choir performed three concerts during the trip to Scotland. The first concert was at St. Matthew’s Church in Perth, where we were privileged to sing alongside the East Fife Male Voice Choir -a  great Choir with wonderful harmonies.  At the second concert,  held in the Holy Trinity Church,  St. Andrews the Choir was welcomed and led in to the venue by a pipe band, a thrill to the Choir and our supporters. The organisers had provided “three up and coming” young artistes for this concert, all of whom had lovely voices giving us very rich and entertaining performances. The third concert was at our hotel, The Angus Hotel in Blairgowrie. We performed in the ballroom to a packed audience where many expressed their enjoyment and appreciation.

All the proceeds from these concerts went to the MacMillan Nurses Trust, and over the three concerts a sum of approximately £2500 was raised for this very worthy cause.

The Choir members and our travelling friends met with fellow choristers and their partners from across the border and a very friendly atmosphere ensued throughout the trip – not just during the concerts but with everyone we met.  The hotel is to be recommended, the food was exceptional, the staff were brilliant and the rooms were spotless. – Our thanks goes out to them and to Skills Coaches, to Dave and to Lee our drivers, all who helped make the trip a total success.
