New year message

Happy new year! We hope 2013 will carry on as well as 2012 finished for The Garleton Singers. The choir is still relishing the big hit we registered with our Christmas Concert. You may recall that we handed out a questionnaire at the concert? This showed that 95% of the sell-out audience rated the performance as good or excellent – thank you! We also got a wonderful review in the East Lothian Courier.

 

We intend to build on that success in our March concerts. Mozart’s ‘Requiem’ speaks for itself as an outstanding choral  classic. Haydn’s ‘Stabat Mater’ is poignant and tuneful, with the exciting final movement taking us ‘in glory to Paradise’. Our venues of Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh and St Mary’s in Haddington are well suited for these powerful and emotive works. The choir will be accompanied by a full orchestra and four excellent professional soloists.

 

Early rehearsals are going well, so why not put March 16th (Greyfriars) or March 17th (Haddington) in your diaries? Or better still you can book online now via the links on top left of this page.
