Performers at Advent Adventure

It was great to see the North Church in Hamilton full this evening for an Advent concert featuring the Lanarkshire Guitar and Mandolin Orchestra (aka Da Capo Alba), the youth orchestra (aka MANGO) and singers both from Hamilton Grammar and from the North Church itself.

I have heard so much about Da Capo Alba over the years but until tonight I'd never actually managed to get to one of their concerts. It was good to hear them playing together, both the senior and junior orchestras. I picked up a CD after the concert, so will look forward to giving that a listen.

The vocal ensemble from Hamilton Grammar did a great job with some beautiful singing, and some voices that belied their young years. Here they are pictured joining Da Capo Alba for a medley of Christmas songs.

Another good night - all to help raise funds for the Hamilton Churches Drop-In Centre - so well done to all involved.
