Lanark and Caluke Choral Union
Greyfriars Parish Church, Bloomgate, ML11 9ET
Our choir is a mixed choir of 40+ voices. Practises are held weekly in Greyfriars Parish Church, Bloomgate, Lanark, ML11 9ET.
We are very much a community choir and are looking at new ways in which we can become more relevant and integrated. We want to encourage the future local singers to get involved and support our youngsters by offering opportunities to perform with us.
Our Conductor and Musical Director is Leon Reimer - Having been brought up as a singer, he enjoys frequent choral conducting opportunities. Most notably as the Associate Conductor of the University of Glasgow Chapel Choir and Glasgow Chamber Choir. In 2017, Leon also made his debut with the University of Glasgow Choral Society. Leon has lead groups of singers at several major festivals, including the Edinburgh International Festival, the Celtic Connections Festival as well as Glasgow’s West End Festival.
We meet in Greyfriars Parish Church on Monday evenings starting at 7.30pm. A Full list of dates is available on our website. New members are encouraged to come along to a rehearsal, and all rehearsals are open rehearsals for any new people, to come along and try us out without commitment before joining as full members.
We generally hold two concerts a year, a winter concert and a spring concert. We also hold a fundraising day in March and numerous social occasions for our members throughout the year.
