Spring Fling Evening of Music: Wednesday 4th March

Posted on Feb 12, 2015 | No Comments

This year’s concert will be held at Marchmont St Giles, Kilgraston Road, on Wednesday 4th March at 7pm and tickets will be available from the door on the evening of the concert, priced £6/£4 concession. Doors will open at 6.30pm and refreshments will be available before the concert. This year’s concert will not feature an interval, and will finish around 8.30pm.

The concert programme offers a diverse range of ensembles, choirs and smaller chamber groups and also offers the opportunity for SQA soloists to perform. This year, we are also delighted to welcome Preston Street Primary School Choir.

As I am sure you are aware, rehearsals on the day itself plays a vital part, and we must ensure that all performers arrive 15 minutes before their appropriate rehearsal at Marchmont St Giles.

We trust that all pupils make their own way to these rehearsals in a sensible manner and in groups.

As always, dress for the evening concert for all performers is: white shirt/blouse, school tie, dark trousers/skirt and dark shoes.

School ties are available from ‘The Clan House of Edinburgh’ outlets at 28 – 30 Morningside Road and 45 Grove Street priced from £3.80 to £4.80.

Performers are discouraged from bringing in valuables to any rehearsal and to the concert as dressing rooms may be unattended at times. We cannot accept responsibility for any personal items. Once again, we thank you for your continued support and hope that you have a very enjoyable evening. We look forward to seeing you there.
