Together Again! – May 1st, 2022, 2:30 pm

We are getting ready for our first performance in over two years. Join us on Sunday afternoon, May 1st, as we sing an eclectic programme of music from classical to jazz, including the premiere of a new piece by our conductor Nicholas Fairbank. Nicholas teamed up with bass singer and history buff Gordon Shrimpton to write a modern sea shanty about the famous HMS Bellerophon, a British naval ship which took part in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Also joining us will be our new collaborative pianist Jody Onuma and flautist Kristina Stevens.

Also on the programme, and in keeping with the concert’s nautical theme,  will be a surprise performance by two members of the Bon Accord Highland Dance Studio.

Tickets for this concert are available now – go to the Tickets page for details.
