They say a good sing-a-long is ben­e­fi­cial for the lungs and the soul, and if you are more keen on belt­ing out show­tunes than carols and hymns, A West End Christ­mas might help blow the win­ter cob­webs away ready for the hol­i­days.

Re­turn­ing to Glas­gow af­ter some rap­tur­ous no­tices for pre­vi­ous per­for­mances, A West End Christ­mas has two per­for­mances to­day.

Backed by the Royal Scot­tish Na­tional Or­ches­tra and the City of Glas­gow Cho­rus un­der the ba­ton of Michael Eng­land, singing stars Anna O’Byrne, Jac­qui Scott,

Jon Boy­don and Scott Davies bring to­gether two glitzy col­lec­tions of big songs from the sil­ver screen and hits from clas­si­cal mu­si­cals such as The Phan­tom Of The Opera, Les Mis­érables, Chicago and 42nd Street.

Fol­low­ing to­day’s con­certs, the RSNO then take their live ac­com­pa­ni­ment to The Snow­man on tour around Scot­land. With guest pre­sen­ter Jamie MacDougall nar­rat­ing dur­ing a spe­cial show­ing of the fes­tive clas­sic on the large screen, The Snow­man is at Perth Con­cert Hall on De­cem­ber 19, Dundee Caird Hall on De­cem­ber 20, Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on De­cem­ber 21 and Glas­gow Royal Con­cert Hall on De­cem­ber 22.
