Bowmore Heavenly ChoirOn Monday 7th March, 22 very excited children took the bus up to our Gaelic College to be part of the opening celebrations of Bowmore’s Lunch Club. This new club has been set up by Gill Chasemore who invited our choir to sing as part of the ceremony.
They sang a toe-tapping selection, including their Mod winning entry Puirt à Beul!
All club members enjoyed the performance as well as all the other visitors at the college. The choir and their conductor, Alison Gray, enjoyed not one but two rounds of applause – and they deserved it!
