The Stornoway Singers were greatly encouraged by the reception they received for their performance of Handel’s Messiah in April as it was their first performance since Covid.

Buoyed up by the support of the town and visitors, they are now preparing for their next.

This will be a September Serenade in the Town Hall at 7.30pm on Saturday 17 September. 

The choir will perform a varied repertoire and this evening will be very different from Messiah; which is beautiful but rather serious music.

Peter Moger, choir director, says: “We are delighted to be singing again.  This concert will have a varied programme of madrigals, part songs and close harmony arrangements”.

He is certainly keeping the choir on their toes and regular Tuesday practises are such a great pleasure after struggling for two years to keep things going online.

It has been very interesting for the members to learn different styles ranging from 16th century madrigals dealing with the perils of romance, through Victorian sentiment and up to “Don’t it make my brown eyes blue” recorded by Crystal Gale in 1977!

Peter also promises some instrumental interludes which, all in all, will make for a very entertaining evening of “easy on the ears” music. 

Hopefully, everyone will go away with a new ear worm!

The Singers are currently on their summer break and will be back to rehearsals on 24 August so they will be well in tune to serenade Stornoway on 17 September.
