Ayr Choral Online – Spring 2021

Following on from Ayr Choral Union’s extremely successful online Messiah, highlighted by Keith Bruce in the Herald magazine, in January we will start to rehearse for our Choral Masterworks Concert. We’ll be singing ten Choral favourites, classical and contemporary, and the list will definitely contain at least one of everyone’s ”Desert Island Discs” with music by Bach, Verdi and Mozart as well as Gjeilo, Lauridsen and MacMillan.

Our exceptional soloists, Catriona Hewitson, Penelope Cousland, Ted Black and Colin Murray will again be joining Andrew McTaggart to sing us through Zoom rehearsals, with Andrew Forbes as accompanist. As well as laying down backing tracks, they will be adding some coaching on the Tuesday evening Zoom sessions. To add to the excitement we will have some very special guests popping in!
There will still be many hoops to jump through before big choirs are fully back in live action, so we are delighted to continue to welcome not only our own members whose response to Online singing has been magnificent, but also singers from all parts of Scotland and beyond! There will be 12 rehearsals beginning on Tuesday 12th January at 7:30pm. To book a singing place or get more information, contact ayrchoral@outlook.com or check us out on www.ayrchoralunion.net or @ayrchoralunion on Facebook.Everyone who has taken part in our Zoom rehearsals has felt the physical and psychological benefits of the sessions. Let’s keep singing!
