Saturday 26 October saw the Chorus in the Ross Bandstand, Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh, celebrating Diwali – the Festival of Light – with our friends from the Indian community. We performed a selection of Scottish songs, enthusiastically joined in the singing of Jai Ho, and finished by leading the large crowd who had braved the cold in a rendition of Auld Lang Syne.
Not content with that, most of the Chorus took the No 41 bus to Blackhall to entertain the members of the Blackhall Bowling Club after they had finished an evening of wine tasting, some of which they very kindly shared with us.
Comments from the audience included
“Loved listening to each of the songs”
“Emotional at times”
“Great addition to the evening’s entertainment”
“I don’t think that there’s another Male voice Chorus quite like them”
