Welcome to our new website! We’ve been working to redevelop the site, so some things have moved, but you’ll find the static material that used to appear at the bottom of this page has been relocated to the Welcome page. This page displays the three most recent posts in the Home category: older posts can be found in our Posts archive.
You’ll enjoy it too!
It’s 2017, and the first rehearsal after the break sees our company setting out to enjoy themselves and delight you, our audience. You’ll be amazed at what these Victorian bridesmaids get up to when Rae leads them from the front!
All will be revealed in February, and all you have to do is buy a ticket or three for the show. The order form will give you details and prices, and you can order tickets from any member, from our ticket hot-line (07703 483083), or from the Carnegie Hall Box Office (01383 602302).
We wish you a Merry Christmas!
Saturday 17 December … just eight days to go … and the Society were singing carols again at Tesco’s Duloch store in aid of Whitefield Day Hospital. Anne was pleased to report that “we raised £505 from our efforts yesterday. Thank you to everyone who came along, it was great fun as always, and thankfully not too cold. A special thanks too to Willie, we couldn’t sing like that without his brilliant accompaniment.”
We wish all our supporters and friends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year. But remember that it’s just 67 sleeps until we invite you all to Rederring and Ruddigore Castle, so why not put a ticket or three for Ruddigore in your wish list for Santa!
Our summer concerts
In the past week there have been two opportunities to hear the Society in summer concert mode. The first was at St Andrew’s Clermiston Church of Scotland, Edinburgh, on the evening of Wednesday 22nd June – unlike the December carol concert, this didn’t need to be cancelled because of problems with the Forth Road Bridge! Our second was a slightly shorter afternoon concert at the Church of the Holy Name, Oakley on Sunday 26th June, which was followed by an opportunity to chat with the audience and share the hospitality of the church – thank you for a great tea!
Two audiences warmed to our performances, with an eclectic mix of music from the shows from chorus and soloists, and two ‘tasters’ from our forthcoming production of Ruddigore. We hope that we’ll be seeing them again at Carnegie next February, and that they will spread the word that Dunfermline G&S are great entertainers.
