Welcome. Thank you for visiting our website.
Lesmahagow Male Voice Choir is one of the longest surviving organisations in our historic viallge in Clydesdale Scotland. We have been in existence, uninterupted since 1920, when the Choir was formed to take young men off the streets duirng a time of high unemployment. We are an amateur group ranging in age from 20 to 70.
Our programme changes every year and covers a wide range of pieces, from modern through to classical.
We rehearse from 6-30pm to 8-30pm every Sunday night, and 7-00pm to 8-30pm every Tuesday night in the Parish Church hall, Abbeygreen, Lesmahagow from October through to the end of March, with breaks for Christmas etc. In addition to the great pleasure of singing in harmony, members, with partners and friends, participate in a robust and active social life.
The Choir mainly performs at fund raising events for charities, churches, guilds and clubs, etc throughout the local area. In addition our annual concert is usually held on the Thursday and Friday of the second week in March. We also take part in the annual Festival of Male Voice Choirs in Hamilton and also performed at: the Scottish Massed Male Voice Choirs in the Royal Concert Hall Glasgow; Leonard Cheshire fund raising concerts held in Dumfries; recorded for the BBC with the Scottish Massed Male Voice Choir for a Christmas Eve carol service which was shown before midnight on 24th Dec. 2012.
We would be delighted to perform at your function either with the full choir (around 30 members) or with a smaller group (double quartet or quartet). Complete the details on our Contact Us page to discuss.
