On a rainy Saturday afternoon, fifty members of the choir and some new faces turned out for a ‘socially-distanced’ taster of Bach’s St John Passion with Andy McTaggart. Andy had us trying out some of the gentler Chorals before tackling one or two of the more challenging choruses!

It was great to see so many people and we are all looking forward to returning to regular rehearsals after the Christmas break. Full rehearsals for the St John Passion begin on Tuesday 11th January at 7.30pm at Castlehill Church and the first few weeks will see us working in sections with both Andy and our assistant conductor, Nils Meier.

We hope some of the visitors who came and tried will join us regularly and if you are interested in joining, then please contact ayrchoral@outlook.com – we look forward to seeing you!
