'Founded in 1960 and every year since then has been bringing to this corner of Scotland a season of concerts of classical and contemporary music performed by musicians of national and international acclaim. We have always encouraged young artists and we have an excellent reputation with our audiences and amongst the promoters of music in Scotland for the very high standards of our concerts. Meeting the ever rising cost becomes increasingly difficult and would never be possible without generous help from Enterprise Music Scotland and our other sponsors and supporters.'

'We are always looking for new members of all ages, especially in the male voice sections of the choir. Although we are a non-auditioned choir we still aim to maintain high standards ... You don't have to be able to sight-read, but a reasonable ability to read music would help (and, of course, the ability to sing in tune). We realise it can be very daunting to take that first step into a new organisation but many of us who did have been greatly rewarded by the experience of providing much pleasure to our audiences ...'

‘The Choir came into existence in 1920 when a far-sighted District Clerk, Walter Burnett, started a Choir to take men off the streets at a time of great unemployment, and provide them with an appreciation of music and a new social environment. It was hugely successful in meeting its first objective “to improve the musical education and social life of the men in the village, and to stimulate an interest in, and love for good music in the community”. As the Choir developed, their Annual Concert became a focal point for the members, a peak achievement performance and a climax for all the hard work and commitment that had gone before. It also gave the villagers the opportunity to hear and see professional quality artistes of all persuasions, at an affordable cost, something that was well beyond the reach of residents at that time.’

The Choir's repertoire is wide and varied ranging from classical, church music, music from the shows and light popular music.'
