joining
Hi, my son and I are interested in joining. I have sung with choral societies in the past although not in a long time. Cal my son took part in the Cromarty youth opera this year and really enjoyed it. We wondered if there was a joining process and also what night you met. Regards Ellen

Hi Ellen,

We would be delighted to have you along. The joining process is very simple. Come along, say hello, and sing!

Our first rehearsal is on Thursday the 12th of January at the rear hall of the Church of Scotland on Castle Street, Dingwall.

If you would like me to do a voice placing check to help you decide which part to sing I am more than happy to do that, but if you already know which part you are comfortable with then I will point you in the right direction.

The choir are a very friendly bunch and we always look forward to meeting new people.

I always try and get along to Edward's youth opera. Alas I couldn't make it this year.

Hope to see you on the 12th.

Christmas Concert, 3 December 2016
A big thank you to the singers and their conductor for yesterday's concert. The singers were in good voice and Messrs Haydn and Vivaldi would have been pleased to hear their music presented in such a convincing way. The "Christmas Carol" half of the concert was a really good rendition of some all-time favourites and the audience were only too willing to join in when invited. Especially the ingenious illustrations to "The Twelve Days of Christmas" drew many a chuckle from the delighted audience.
A lovely evening all round!

Joining choir
Hello, I am interested in joining. Could you let me know how to go about this? I have sang in various choirs and choral groups, but not for some years.

Hi Andrea,

There is no formal joining process, you can just come along and sing; we would be delighted to see you there.

Our first rehearsal of this term is on August 21st in the rear hall of the Church of Scotland on Castle street in Dingwall.

There are no auditions although should you wish I will happily listen to you sing and suggest a voice part if you are not sure where you should be.

If you need any more information please send me an email at jwthomson@gmail.com

Looking forward to meeting you,

JohnT

Haydn Mass in Time of War
I see there are three editions of the Vocal Score available through ChoraLine. A new Novello Edition, a Peters Edition and a Barenreiter Edition. Do you know which we will be using in the Autumn? The Novello is the cheapest to buy, less than £10.

I would like to study the score in advance.

Hi Julian,

I believe we will be using the Novello scores. My own score is certainly novello, so we can keep everybody else right!

Ola Gjeilo
Hi John,
Have you come across Ola Gjeilo, the young ( well youngish) Norwegian composer? He's written some sublime choral music.

>>I don't believe I have. I shall have to look him up and have a listen! Thanks, Oriole
