A performance of Handel’s Messiah at Christmas in 1968 led to the formation of the choir, and it was from this modest beginning that Bearsden Choir has grown in stature to take its place as one of Scotland’s finest choirs. Currently, the choir has a membership of over 100 and it is always keen to recruit new singers.
Under the leadership of Frikki Walker, the choir offers singers the chance to face new musical challenges, to tackle innovative and inspiring works, whilst recognising the enduring popularity of the great traditional choral favourites. Members foresee exciting times ahead and they relish the opportunity of conveying audiences on more magical, musical adventures.
Come along to New Kilpatrick Parish Church New Halls, Bearsden on Saturday 26th April to enjoy some delicious home-baking and have a browse at a varied selection of stalls. Tickets are £2 and it will start at 10am and finish at 12noon.
