FES­TIVE VOICES

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Geddes

The popular Cale­do­nian Voices choir will be bring­ing their fes­tive show to Stonelaw Church this Fri­day (De­cem­ber 19).

It’s the third year in a row that the choir will be ap­pear­ing at Stonelaw, with all the funds raised on the night go­ing to­wards a good cause too, in the shape of the Cam­bus­lang and Ruther­glen Rea­chout Trust.

Cale­do­nian Voices con­sists of singers who are ei­ther em­bark­ing on a pro­fes­sional ca­reer or who are still study­ing at univer­sity, but want to keep singing in a cham­ber choir.

It’s the brain­child of Calum Fraser and for­mer Stonelaw High pupil An­drew McTag­gart, who used to stay near Dry­burgh Av­enue.

The pro­gramme will pro­vide plenty of fes­tive favourites that are guar­an­teed to get the Christ­mas spirit go­ing.

Ear­lier this year An­drew told the Re­former: “This is the third one we’ve done at Stonelaw and we’re just sort­ing out the pro­gramme.

“There’s some clas­si­cal mu­sic, there’s some sing-a-long car­ols and if you like the tra­di­tional Christ­mas feel then there’s can­dles, the church is lit in a re­ally nice way and there’s mulled wine and short­bread at the in­ter­val. “It’s a lovely evening.” The con­cert will also en­sure funds are raised for the Rea­chout Trust, the group that tries to help chil­dren and teenagers ex­pe­ri­ence the Christian faith in a pos­i­tive way.

An­drew was in­volved with the char­ity in the past and is happy to help them out with the con­cert.

An­drew added: “I re­mem­bered go­ing along to a few events when I was younger and it’s good to come back and raise some money for them.
