“Come & Sing” J S Bach: B Minor Mass, January 2016


On Saturday 23rd January 2016 “The Stonehaven Chorus” hosted a very successful “Come & Sing” Event, inviting anyone interested in singing to come along and experience the intense magic and majesty of Bach’s B Minor Mass.

During the day they explored a selection of the key choruses, led by conductor Ralph Jamieson and accompanied by Arthur Balfour, which culminated in a short informal performance. It was a truly uplifting and fulfilling day.

Around 30 guests joined 35 Chorus members with enthusiasm, commitment and a desire to enjoy making music together. As a result, the Chorus are delighted to say that 11 of the guests were encouraged enough to voice their intension to become members this session.
Below are some of the many delightful comments given by attendees’ feedback:
