Flute Vacancy - Update
Following a series of auditions, two flautists have each been asked to play for two rehearsals during the summer rehearsal season, after which a final decision will be made.
The orchestra has been invited to accompany the Kelvin Choir in their next concert on Sunday 14 May in Hyndland Parish Church. The programme will include Puccini’s Messa di Gloria and works by Parry and Vaughan Williams. Tickets are now available on-line at www.kelvinchoir.com, or at the door on the night.
