To join in the fun you don't need to be a trained singer, only able to hold a tune; guidance will be given. All ages welcome, as long as your voice has broken!
In addition to the great pleasure of singing in harmony, members, with partners and friends, participate in a robust and active social life.
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.
Lesmahagow Male Voice Choir is one of the longest existing organisations in our historic village in Clydesdale Scotland. We have been in existence, uninterupted since 1920, when the Choir was formed to take young men off the streets during 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.
The Choir performs at events for charities, churches, guilds and clubs etc, throughout the local area and beyond. 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.
