We’re happy to advertise events in which our members are taking part, provided that they have some general musical or theatrical interest, and to showcase shows and concerts being run by other local societies. All we need is to have information and an image, and preferably also a web link.

If you have an event to share, please email Martin.


Burns Sangfest

While current company members themselves won’t be able to come – busy rehearsing! – hopefully others of you will be interested in a concert that Alison Pendlowski wanted you to hear about. She’ll be singing in the choir, and Nancy Crook, one of our next rehearsal pianists, is directing, so it’ll be an enjoyable evening.

As part of the Dunfermline Carnegie Library’s “Tae a Bard” exhibition, Ivor Klayman and the Queen Anne Singers are putting on “A Burn’s Sangfest” on Wednesday 22 January at 7.00pm in the Canmore Room at the Library. It’s a revival of the show about Burns and his songs that John Cairney wrote and performed for many years with the vocal quartet The Quatrain for whom Nancy Crook was the accompanist, but performed this time by Ivor Klayman and the Queen Anne Singers under the direction of Nancy Crook. It includes a brief history of Burns in narration, readings using in his own words and, of course, many of his songs

More details about “Tae a Bard” in the linked leaflet (though there are some typos), and you can get the £10 tickets for the Sangfest from the Library or on-line at this link.

Family connections

To get you in the mood for the DGASS Christmas meal at the Pitbauchlie Hotel, fly through the air with some of the HMS Pinafore orchestra at the Kirkcaldy Orchestral Society’s Christmas concert(s): 2.00pm and 4.00pm at the Old Kirk of Kirkcaldy, on Sunday 15 December.

As well as carols, we’ll be playing “The Snowman”, dances from “La Fille Mal Gardee”, and “Queen in Concert”.

Tickets (£9 adults/£4 children) from Ellen Patrick or via moc.liamgnull@yteicoslartsehcroydlackrik or by phoning 07770 332812.

Spoiled for choice

7.30pm on Saturday 26 October provides charitably-minded members of the Society with two opportunities to enjoy live music: in different places, and in different genres.

At Limekilns Parish Church, you can listen to a wide range of music for soprano, violin and piano in aid of the Return to Life Charity, that aims to provide support for those with chronic kidney disease. More details about the music and the charity by clicking the image on the left.

At Pathhead Church, Kirkcaldy, East Fife Male Voice Choir are joined by Colwyn Male Voice Choir for an eagerly awaited return joint concert, following East Fife’s visit to North Wales last October. This concert is in aid of Haiti Help, a local charity well-known to us: more information and tickets at this link.

Cromlit’s at Carnegie

Vince Gray, for many years the leader of the orchestra that accompanies our shows, is also heavily involved in Cromlit’s Lilt, an string ensemble that is offering “Baroque Serendipity” at their next concerts!

This year, their Dunfermline late Summer concert is taking place at the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum, who are hoping to expand the use of the Museum to accommodate musical events, so do head to Moodie Street at 7.30pm on Saturday 31 August for Cromlit’s choice of pieces by Handel, Vivaldi, and other well-known composers. Click the image for a downloadable poster with a listing.

Tickets are £8 (£6 concession). Reservations can be made by calling 01383 724302 or emailing moc.ecalphtribeigenracnull@stneve. Cash payment must be made on the night.

If you miss their Dunfermline gig, Cromlit’s will be repeating the concert in The Old Kirk, Kirkcaldy on Sunday 15 September at 7.00pm.
