In October 2018 Berwick Arts Choir members and friends enjoyed a hugely entertaining and informative singing workshop, held in the beautiful surroundings of the ballroom at Ayton Castle.
The workshop, entitled Making the Most of Your Voice, was led by Kathleen McKellar Ferguson, Singing Tutor at the Royal Scottish Conservatoire of Music in Glasgow.
Kathleen said of the day:
Our new website launched in August 2019.
We are delighted with the new layout and think that it gives a good feel for the choir and our performances, as well as useful information for anyone thinking of joining the choir, coming to a concert or supporting us by becoming a Friend.
The new website has been made possible by a generous grant from The Simpson McCreath Trust, for which we are very grateful.
Our latest concert took place on Saturday 18th May 2019 in Berwick Parish Church.
The choir performed the very moving Requiem by Maurice Duruflé, Requiem Canticorum by James Whitbourn, a work written in 2010 with organ and saxophone solo accompaniment, and the Cantique de Jean Racine by Gabriel Fauré.
Our soloists were Tamsin Davidson - mezzo soprano, and Liam McNally - baritone.
We were accompanied by Joseph Beech on organ and Sam Lord on saxophone. In addition to the choral works Sam and Joseph dazzled us all with music by Saint-Saëns, Madeline Dring and Albinoni.
The concert was a great success and the audience was very appreciative.
If you would like to support the choir please consider becoming a Friend.
Why not find out what it is like to sing with us? Come to a rehearsal with no obligation.
