'Our Season extends from late August to mid May ... The choir undertakes at least four performances every season in a range of venues ... We sing a wide range of musical styles and perform works by composers from the traditional to the entirely contemporary. We enjoy singing with highly acclaimed professional soloists and orchestras. Singers eager to join the choir are advised to come along for a rehearsal or two to get a better feel for how we operate before going forward for audition ... This is generally a very relaxed experience involving a few voice exercises ... to ensure individuals are placed in the best section for their voice.'

‘We love singing and we aim to be a place where everyone can enjoy singing in an accessible relaxed atmosphere ... New members are welcome any time. You don't need singing experience or sight-reading ability. We are based in the Milngavie community but members are also welcome from further afield. We put on at least two performances a year, as well as sending small singing groups to local residential homes. We sing choral pieces, operatic choruses, operetta, part songs and the occasional foray into songs from musicals and other genres. Music is provided. We host occasional weekend singing days where anyone can book a place to enjoy singing with an inspirational leader.‘

Westerton Male Voice Choir came about because a sodden bowling green prevented members of the Westerton Bowling Club from playing, one day in 1957. Some of the thwarted members gathered round a piano in the pavilion and were so pleased with their efforts that they decided to set up a choir ... From its humble beginnings in the corrugated iron Village Hall, the move to a larger venue for the Annual Concert heralded the broadening of the choir's ambition to entertain in the whole of the local community and not simply in its original village setting. WMVC's sphere is now the whole of Bearsden and Milngavie District, West of Scotland and beyond. The singing will never be done.’
