Kirkintilloch Male Voice Choir aim to bring festive cheer

ON-song Kirkintilloch Male Voice Choir members will help bring some festive cheer into thousands of homes across Scotland when they appear on the BBC’s Watchnight Service from Stirling on Christmas Eve.

Choir members will be part of a 200 strong male voice choir that has been specially brought together for the evening.

KMVC performs throughout the country and over the years has raised thousands of pounds for numerous charities and good causes.

This year charities to benefit from donations of £500 each were the Cleft Lip and Palate Association (CLAPA) and the Beatson Pebble Appeal.

Choir president Alex Hunter said: “We are extremely proud of our tradition of helping to raise thousands of pounds for charities and good causes by singing, as well as supporting our three local secondary schools by providing music prizes each year, and staging a charity concert every two years which incorporates a primary schools choral festival.”

The choir performed at Glasgow City Chambers on Friday (November 30) in the Yorkhill Foundation Christmas Concert, along with a number of other performers.

KMVC sang at last year’s sold out event and were delighted to be invited back this year.

The evening was hosted by Mark Cox and Jane McCarry, Still Game’s ‘Tam and Isa’.

Earlier this year a fascinating book telling the story of Kirkintilloch Male Voice Choir was published.

Priced at just £5, ‘90 Years of Song’ is available, from choir members or via the choir web page – www.kmvc.co.uk or by phoning 0141 775 2437 or 0141 776 6058.
