Up until now all my blogs have been about financial services with a bit of motivation thrown in midweek.
Today I thought, it would be nice to change the topic somewhat by making mention of the Westerton Male Voice Choir, (of which I am a member) and the Choir’s Christmas Concert which took place last Thursday and Friday in New Kilpatrick Parish Church, Bearsden in front of 600 fans (well – that’s what I like to think of them!).
From my point of view, it was a great night and really, really enjoyable. From John Rutter’s “For the Beauty of the Earth” to Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus”, the 55 strong Choir gave their all and received fantastic applause from the assembled masses (!).
In between, we performed the really beautiful and thought provoking “Thankful”, written by Carole Bayer Sager (among others) and recently performed by Josh Groban, and reached out to the kids with songs like “When Santa got stuck up the Chimney”.
Myself and my fellow choristers are grateful, not just for the fantastic attendance but also for their generosity for their charitable donations to our Chosen Charity, Prostate Scotland. Thank you one and all.
