The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland reverberated, as the choir rounded off a successful 2012, with our annual musical celebration of Christmas, on Thursday 20th December. It was a truly fabulous, heartwarming event, that made it feel our Christmas had really begun.
We were so thrilled to have with us such talented guests: Soprano Aileen Marley, The Georgie Salvation Army Band (ably and touchingly directed by Keith Johnston), rising star Suzanne Murphy, flautist Bethany Morton and the Craigholme Festival Choir (under the direction of Merle Craig and accompanied by Anne Macfadden), and even to witness a first performance from Olivia Donnelly!
We were also very pleased to have, as supporting accompanists for the evening, the superb musicians John Pitcathley (Fellow of the Academy) and, for his first Christmas in Scotland, our very own Geoffrey Tanti.
We were delighted to be able to raise £800 for each of the two charities that we were supporting that evening: Diabetes UK, Scotland and The Salvation Army Kenyan Water Development Project

This was in Sherbrooke St Gilbert’s Church, Pollockshields, where we were delighted to be joined by performers from Craigholme Girls School, including some stunningly gifted soloists. We enjoyed sharing, in the performance of a range of thought provoking music and statements, and hearing inspiring news of the work of the Charity ‘Help for Heroes’.
£329.00 was raised from the retiring collection for ‘Help for Heroes’ .
We regret that the below event is now postponed due to unexpected events.
We are sorry for the inconvience and disappointment this will cause and hope to fix another date soon for what promises to be a wonderful tour of young talent.
