About the Strathcarron Singers

In September 2004 Molly Parsons MBE, the first Matron of Strathcarron Hospice fulfilled a long-held ambition to form a choir. Although there were only 7 singers at the first rehearsal the choir grew rapidly and today stands at around 45 members who enjoy singing for fun.

The choir is open to everyone who enjoys singing and many of the members are associated with the Hospice - as current or former staff members, spouses or partners.

Everyone gives their time freely and to date the choir has given many public performances to a wide range of organisations, raising well over £170,000 for Strathcarron Hospice.

The choir is also an excellent social network for keeping in touch with old friends.

Stirling Concert

Our Gala Spring Concert returned on May 22nd after an absence of 3 years due to Covid Restrictions. The Albert Halls hosted a very healthy audience who continue to give the choir their enthusiastic support. Despite the fact that admission was free we received very generous donations and programme advertising that enabled us, after expenses, to donate over £4000 to Strathcarron Hospice.

Our guest artistes were outstanding – Anna Michels (piano) performing Rachmaninov brilliantly, James MacIntyre (Tenor)singing a varied programme from Burns to Arlen's Over the Rainbow and the DCO Wind Octet led by Tim Barrett playing a popular instrumental programme including The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba and Shostakovich's Jazz Suite.

As always the contribution of our Musical Director Matthew Brown and his Dad, David our accompanist provided the creative glue that held the whole concert together and gave it the quality that they always do. We are grateful for everything they do for our choir.

Our performances are available on Facebook and YouTube where there is a link to enable you to donate NB Feel free to choose how much you want to give by using the box for "Other Amounts".

You can also donate directly to the choir by bank transfer. All donations go to Strathcarron Hospice but this allows us to monitor how much comes from the choir's activities.
