This week we are extremelly excited to be taking part in two workshops with the Soweto Melodic Voices, who are in Edinburgh for a month performing at the Fringe. The workshops will be taking place at St. John’s Church, at the Lothian Road end of Princes Street, on Tuesday 6th and Friday 9th August, from 10.30am – 11.30am.

Our workshops will be a sharing of musical styles – we’ll learn some African/gospel songs and we’ll teach them a few scots songs. Auld lang syne will definitely be one we’ll be teaching so please brush up on the words!

Anyone and everyone is welcome along to these workshops – members of Music Society, family, friends, and anybody interested! Please arrive at 10.20am to be ready to start at 10.30am.

Everyone who attends the workshops is also invited to a reception with the principal and vice principal to welcome Soweto to Edinburgh. We’ll be performing at this hopefully as well as enjoying the food and wine. This is on the 14th from 6-7pm in Old College – more information on Tuesday.
