'We are essentially a group of amateur singers and welcome new singers in August and at our mid-term point in the New Year. Entry is by simple audition, but don’t be put off by this – we are always interested in welcoming new members, and auditioning helps us gauge vocal range and ability with singing scales and arpeggios. Some ability to read music is desirable ... We rehearse for three main concerts each year, with classical concerts in November and in the Spring, and a Christmas Concert of Music and Carols in December.'

So far we have performed in Newton Stewart, Lockerbie, Castle Douglas, Carlisle, Kirkcudbright, Gatehouse of Fleet, Langholm, Annan, Stranraer and Moffat. We would value any suggestions for other suitable venues ...'
