Lanarkshire Festival of Male Voice Choirs

67th Annual Festival

The Choir took part in the 67th Annual Lanarkshire Festival of Male Voice Choirs on Friday 29 March 2019.

Choirs taking part were Lesmahagow MVC, Stirling MVC, Stonehouse MVC, Hamilton Caledonian Bowling Club MVC, Glasgow Philharmonic MVC and the guest Choir this year was Aeolian MVC Kilmarnock. Each Choir sang three pieces of their own choice and then all the choirs combined in the second half to sing together. There were 190 singers performing Magnify Glorify, Eriskay love lilt, Portrait of my love, Cwm Rhondda, I’m gonna walk, The Soldiers Farewell and Rhythm of life.

The compare was Douglas Muir who kept the audience entertained during the movements on and off stage. Our own William Barr and our Deputy Conductor Oksana Mavrodii conducted part the massed event accompanied by our own and very talented Sylvia Mihayalova. Definitely one for the diary for next year.
