Our Rehearsals have been suspended until the Covis19 pandemic is past.

Puccini’s Requiem Although very short was extremely poignant and we were accompanied by Ben Kearsley on the Viola, as well as Michał Gajzler on piano.

Petite Messe Solennelle is considered by the composer as one of his Péchés de vieillesse ("Sins of Old Age"), which unites a number of songs, and instrumental works written after his retiring from operatic writing. The Mass was originally composed for 12 voices with piano and harmonium accompaniment. The Farlkirk Festival Chorus was proud to present this initial version of Rossini’s. It is with great pleasure that we welcomed back our founder and Musical Director Robert Tait, who  played the harmonium part, in a duet with our actual pianist Michał Gajzler. It was an exciting performance not to be missed. Soloists:  Dana Tanase – Soprano;  Lynn Bellamy – Mezzo-soprano;  Sanggyoul Lee – Tenor; Lancelot Nomura – Bass;Piano: Michał Gajzler; Harmonium: Robert Tait;  Conductor: Razvan Luculescu

May Concert 2019

On 15th December we held the Bairns’ Christmas in St Mungo’s High School, which was a great success. Our next Concert will probably now be in 2021 depending on Covid-19 lockdown restrictions. We will let it be known just as soon as we are able.

This Autumn, for the first time, we produced a short Autumn Concert, held in the Trinity Church on Sunday 27 October when we performed From The Bavarian Highlands by Edward Elgar and Songs and Sonnets, music by George Shearing and words by William Shakespeare. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all and we may well do something again similar in the future.
