Love Music Choirs – Mon 12 November 2018 – Usher Hall, Edinburgh (© photographer – Andy Catlin www.andycatlin.com)

Love Music Community Choir concert – 11th March 7.30pm Celebrating the start of its 7th year, the largest community choir in the UK – Love Music Community Choir – is presenting its spring concert at the Usher Hall on Monday 11th March. Songs by legendary 1980s Manchester rock band James contrast with ancient music from Swedish fishwives, songs from the German cabaret tradition, and a ground-shaking, spirit-soaring hymn from the American Sacred Harp tradition. Love Music’s 300-strong Community Choir continues to defy expectations, performing a mix of iconic tracks and lesser known musical gems, in their own joyful and exuberant style. This exciting 45-minute event will be directed by award-winning composer and educationalist Stephen Deazley, and accompanied by Scottish musicians Steve Hamilton on piano and Daniel Crichton on guitar. Every term, a choir member nominates a local charity to raise money for; there will be a bucket collection at the end of the event to raise funds for Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance.
