On 30 November a group of Chorus members celebrated St Andrews Day by taking part in Fair Saturday at Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Gardens. We started with an unannounced performance in the John Hope Gateway which quickly drew an enthusiastic and appreciative audience. Then two performances in the Gardener’s Cottage where it was standing room only. The selection of songs from our Scottish repertoire was well-received, with a particularly warm reception for our Scottish anthem, My Homeland. Ben Macpherson, MSP for Edinburgh North and Leith, was so impressed that he donned a Chorus gilet to be photographed with the Chorus!
Hark! An Unheralded Performance!
