Come and Join Us!
To join in the fun you don't need to be a trained singer, only able to hold a tune; guidance will be given. All ages welcome, as long as your voice has broken!
In addition to the great pleasure of singing in harmony, members, with partners and friends, participate in a robust and active social life.
We rehearse from 6.30pm to 8.30pm every Sunday night, and 7.00pm to 8.30pm every Wednesday night in the Parish Church hall, Abbeygreen, Lesmahagow from October through to the end of March, with breaks for Christmas etc.
Annual Concert 2023
The Choir's annual concert will be held on Thursday 9th March 2023 and Friday 10th March 2023 in Lesmahagow Old Parish Church.
Annual Concert 2020 In this our centenary year the Choir held their Annual Concert on the 5th and 6th March in Lesmahagow Old Parish Church. All reports suggest that the choir continue to maintain their usual high standard under Oksana's baton and supported by our pianist Paulius Rudokas. The artistes this year were Richard Smith (Accordian) and Claire Hastings (Folk Singer). Both played a Selection which added to the enjoyment of the evening.
Annual Concert 2019. The Choir's Annual Concert was held on Thursday and Friday 7th and 8th March 2019 in Lesmahagow Old Parish Church. Once again we had an excellent turnout and so far all reports have been very favourable, with the choir maintaining our high standard under the leadership of Oksana ably accompanied by our new pianist Paulius Rudokas. This year our guest artiste was Richard Smith an excellent accordianist who proved very popular. Richard was our guest artiste in 2000 as a young school leaver and has since played abroad in various countries including New Zealand, France, Belgium, Poland and most recently Africa.
The Choir were also due to perform at the Lanarkshire Massed Male Voice Choirs concert on 27th March in Hamilton Townhouse. This however had to be cancelled due to the Coronavirus epidemic.
