I have attached the Menu for your information.  Should you wish to attend please bring £22.50 in an envelope with your name and menu choice added and give it to Rona by the end of November at the latest.  This enables the Hotel to cater more easily and the Treasurer to maintain her sanity.

Choir Christmas dinner in the Lauderdale Hotel.

This is a chance to relax and enjoy good food and the company of our friends, but equally important is that this is our chance to say thank you to Wilson for giving us the use of the function room each week.  We are so fortunate not to have to pay for this accommodation, so please do come along.  Rona will be in touch with the menu and how to book your place.

  • After the dinner, we will break for Christmas and New Year and return to choir on Thursday 11th January 2013.

Lauderdale Community Choir at Glasgow Music Festival 2011Tuesday 12th March 2013
(from 6.30pm)
Glasgow Music Festival Choral Evening, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall

We will put in a non-competitive entry again which means we get the chance to perform and be adjudicated, but we won’t be compared to the other choirs.  We will be singing two songs on the stage at the wonderful Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.  The evening begins at 6.30pm although we won’t know when exactly we will be singing until nearer the time.  Last year we organised a bus to take us to Glasgow and will do so again once the numbers are confirmed.  More details to follow!

Spring FlowersSaturday 11th May 2013
Spring Concert, Lauder Primary School Hall
We’ve booked the Primary School again as it was such a good venue this year.  It was discussed that we should choose a charity to support at our concert.  We supported the Margaret Kerr Unit this year, so I’d be pleased if you could email me with ideas about charities you would like to support in 2013.

Prom Praise – Saturday 27th October


Presented by All Souls Orchestra under the energetic and imitable direction of Noel Tredinnick, PROM PRAISE is a feast of orchestral and solo music as well as an opportunity for the audience to join in singing favourite hymns and worship songs.

If there is sufficient interest, a bus may be arranged from Lauder. Please email in the first instance if you are interested in going on the bus and I’ll let Jo Sutherland know.

Tickets priced are £10.00 and £16.00 are available from the Usher Hall Box Office. Phone 0131 228 1155.
