Spring in Song

The Edinburgh Concert Band and James Gillespies Primary School Choir joined forces for a lively spring concert at Morningside United Church – and raised an impressive £2,532.52. Conducted by Sarah Cunningham, the Edinburgh Concert Band is a community group of around 60 amateur woodwind, brass and percussion players. On the day, the band performed a wide selection of classical, traditional and modern pieces, while the enthusiastic boys and girls of Gillespies’ choir provided a choral interlude. All in all, the concert raised the roof and, thanks to the Morningside United Church’s hosting and sponsorship, raised a great deal of funds for 500 miles. The MUC have been long-time friends and supporters, donating a further £600 in 2011 alone.
