All welcome!

Choral Concert – The Australian Voices

From St Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral:
I write to let you know of a concert in the Cathedral by singers from the vocal ensemble ‘The Australian Voices’ on Wednesday 29th August at 7.30 pm.
This dynamic, young choir have a fantastic reputation for singing of an incredibly high standard; they are currently over from Australia performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival before they embark on a tour around the United Kingdom.   Their programme will include beautiful choral classics from Mozart and Bach to Bruckner and Rachmaninov.   Those who buy tickets for the concert also get free entry to a vocal workshop with the singers at 6.30 pm.
Tickets are available online at or at the door on the evening of the concert (adults: £12, concession: £10, student: £8 – and there is a group ticket for 10 people available at £108) and those who would like to take part in the vocal workshop with the choir are asked to register online for that on the same website.

St Paul’s Cathedral’s Lunchtime Recital

Two of Scotland’s finest traditional musicians, singer  Sheena Wellington and fiddler Karen Hannah, are the guests at St Paul’s Cathedral’s Lunchtime Recital on Saturday 15th October. 

Dundonian Sheena Wellington’s pure clear voice and extensive repertoire has enchanted audiences in clubs, festivals and concert halls throughout the British Isles, Europe, North Africa and the Far East.  

Karen Hannah is well-travelled young fiddle-player having toured in the UK, throughout Europe and as far afield as New Zealand. As well as being an accomplished soloist she is a member of several duos, trios and ceilidh bands. She is involved in organising music events and is kept busy teaching fiddle at The Wighton Centre in Dundee, in schools and community centres and to private pupils. 

The pair will provide a varied programme of Scots traditional music and song laced with their deep knowledge and sparkling humour. 

The concert starts at 1pm and tickets are £4, £3 concessions and £2 children, on the door.
