THE collaboration of two historic Highland Gaelic choirs is bearing fruit and will be showcased at a number of events in the coming weeks and months.
This year’s Royal National Mod saw Dingwall and Inverness Gaelic Choirs join up to perform as Eadarainn (Between Us) with Ross Brindle (Dingwall) and Jamie Macgregor (Inverness) joint conductors.
The male voice won several trophies with its conductor Nina MacKellor of Nairn Gaelic Choir, emphasizing the supportive nature of the language and culture in the Highlands.
The choir has a busy time ahead with Eadarainn performing at Rosskeen Free Church’s Carols by Candlelight on Friday, December 15 at 6.30 pm; Simpsons Garden Centre on Saturday, December 16 from 1.30pm and Muir of Ord Church of Scotland’s service of carols on the evening of Sunday December 17 from 6.30pm, followed by mince pies in the hall.
2024 sees Dingwall Gaelic reach its 70th anniversary and to mark the occasion a special concert will be held in Dingwall Academy on Friday, March 15 and will feature many well know performers.
Meantime new members are always welcome to join or return. Further information can be obtained on Dingwall Gaelic Choir’s Facebook page or from choir members.
