The Dalkeith Singers held a very successful concert at the beginning of December in St Nicholas Buccleuch Church.

People who didn’t have tickets had to be turned away at the door of the final concert by musical director Cole Brendan.

The programme was a mixture of Christmas music and carols, and the special guests the Newtongrange Junior Band were a great hit.

The audience were very generous in giving £521 in a collection for the Pathhead Youth Project for their summer programme.

The Dalkeith Singers start rehearsals again on Thursday, January 12 in St Nicholas Church Hall, Dalkeith.

The new musical director Jessica Leary will be preparing the choir for its next concert in May. New members are always welcome, especially tenors and basses.
