Fine blend of choral voices

Linlithgow Ladies Choir
Linlithgow Ladies Choir

Linlithgow ladies’ choir has had a very busy and productive start to the New Year.

The group staged a very succesful carol singing performance at Sainsbury’s store in Linlithgow.

As a result the ladies have now donated £150 to the Chest Heart and Stroke charity. The balance raised will benefit worthy causes in and around Linlithgow.

A section of the choir travelled to Guyancourt – the French town twinned with Linlithgow – last month.

And they then flew to Paris at the end of January where they were hosted by families as part of the traditional twinning arrangement.

Without exception, everyone had a wonderful time with the hosts’ generosity making the visit even more memorable and the choir returning home having made new friends.

There are plans for future visits with more joint choir performances.

The next joint concert will be held in Linlithgow Academy on Tuesday, March 3, at 7.30pm.

A Festival of Voices has been organised by Linlithgow’s Rotary Club and brings together the ladies’ choir and Ferry Blend supported by Cockleroy and Gillian Strang.

Tickets £8, are available from Far From The Madding Crowd, The Line Gallery or by contacting Chris Long on rotaryevents@linlithgowgrange.org.uk. The event is supporting the charity founded by Sally Magnusson - Playlist for Life, to benefit Alzheimer sufferers.
