Due to a small number of ticket sales and the dubious looking weather forecast, the PA have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the Scavenger Hunt which was scheduled to take place on Wednesday 24 June 2015. Our sincere apologies for any disappointment
Craigie PA would like to thank you for all of your continued support throughout 2014-15.
Have a Happy Summer Holiday.

Edna Auld formed the Jambouree Choir in 2005 with 18 boys and girls of primary age. Their first engagement was to sing “Highland Cathedral” at the opening of Perth Concert Hall in the presence of HM the Queen.
There are currently 35 members ranging from 5-24 years, with members from throughout Perth and Kinross. There is no audition for the Choir and membership is entirely free to all young people thanks to Youth Music Initiative funding.
Youth Music Initiative funding of £2000 per year pays the honoraria of the vocal tutor and the assistant director. All other staff, including our director, Edna Auld, work on a voluntary basis.
Through the Concerts money is raised to support further education of talented students, and also staff development. 4 of the senior singers have recently attended the Oxenfoord international Vocal School for Singers and Accompanists together with the Vocal Tutor and Assistant Choir Director. This was all paid from funds.
Through the generosity of supporters, most of the money was raised to record the latest Jambouree CD.
There are currently a few places for boys and girls from P4 upwards, and for secondary and other students, in the tenor and bass sections. Changing voices are also welcome. Enquiries regarding possible membership can be made through the “Contact Us” page.
