Rolling Hills Chorus
A Busy December!
On two Saturdays in December shoppers in Edinburgh were entertained by 40 men in Santa hats and Chorus jumpers touring the streets of the city centre singing carols to raise the spirits and at the same time raising more than £1000 for Prostate Scotland.
What could be better than to sing in the iconic Canongate Kirk, in support of the Crisis Charity and its message of ‘Hope’. We sang ‘Silent Night’ followed by ‘Oh Holy Night’ and brought to many of the congregation their first sense of Christmas. While ‘Silent Night’ hushed everyone it was ‘Oh Holy Night’ that swelled the emotions and brought complimentary comments from members of the congregation, including the Edinburgh Director of Crisis Skylight Edinburgh, Grant Campbell, whose Father sang with the Rolling Hills Chorus over ten years ago!
And what could be a better way to end the year than with our annual concert with the children of Clermiston Primary School, and our special guests INCOGNITO. The Chorus was still in fine voice, the children were delightful, the ladies of INCOGNITO added their own special charm and wonderful harmonies, and we raised £460 for St Columba’s Hospice and Prostate Scotland.
