Our calendar of rehearsals, concerts and social events has been updated on the website – please check frequently for updates. Our 2017-18 season began with a glorious Gilbert and Sullivan evening – featuring a variety of the duo’s operettas in the first half and a complete performance of Trial By Jury in part 2. We were delighted to welcome additional voices drawn from our local community, thanks to a special initiative from Perth and Kinross Council which was inspired by Perth’s bid to become the next City of Culture.
We were also delighted to welcome back the international Dutch Tenor Amand Hekkers, who led our senior members in a Masterclass in October.
Laim Bonthrone recently entertained guests at Methven Castle on Sunday 2nd July.
The annual Christmas Concert, for Jambouree Choir and Cabaret Singers, took place in St Leonard-in-the-fields, on Sunday 10th December. The following Sunday, theCabaret Singers performed at the Civic Carol Service in St John’s Kirk.
The Jambouree Cabaret Singers, Teenah, Moira, Kenneth, Liam and Rona will perform at the traditional Burns Supper in Pitlochry Festival Theatre on 27th January – an event now firmly established in our annual programme.
Our summer concerts unveil an exciting new project for the choir – a Summer Panto with words by one of our regular and most popular lyricists. Looking further ahead, we are planning to take our successful Gilbert and Sullivan concert to Crieff and then, early in our 2018-19 season we look forward to a production of Cox and Box, a one-act comic opera with a libretto by F. C. Burnand and music by Arthur Sullivan.
Looking forward to another good season of singing.
Edna Auld and Rona Mackenzie
