Choir to make recording with Margaret Bennett
Internationally renowned folklorist and singer Margaret Bennett has invited the Aberfeldy & District Gaelic Choir to accompany her on a new CD she will soon be recording.
Choir President Lou Oppenheim says the Choir is thrilled at the invitation, particularly as 2007 marks the Choir’s 40th anniversary. “We love singing with Margaret. One of our highlights last year was singing with her in the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, and previously we joined her in the opening concert of the Perth Concert Hall. It’s fantastic that she wants to sing with us again, and it makes our 40th Anniversary even more special!”
The Choir will be marking the occasion in grand style
with a Celebration Banquet at Castle Menzies, near Aberfeldy, on Saturday
June 23rd. If any former Choir members or supporters would like to go,
limited tickets are available from Sarah Brown on 01350 727768.
