The Ythan Singers received a standing ovation at the end of their recent concert ‘Welcome to Broadway’.

The concert, which was an extravaganza of songs from 100 years of Broadway, was held on Friday, May 24 at Ellon Parish Church Kirk Centre.

It included solo pieces from choir members.

Adrian Smith was a Busy Bee, Jennifer Strachan’s best friend was ‘Diamonds’, Moira Longstaff and Christine Cruikshank were ‘Sisters’ for the night, Carol Addison had ‘Rhythm’, Hazel Wilkins explained why she was ‘Always a Bridesmaid’, Carole Fox sang ‘Make Believe’ and Sheila Craggs welcomed ‘Summer Time’.

Rosemary Lund accompanied everything with her usual flair and impressive keyboard playing.

The choir has enjoyed this first year of working with Morag Simpson as their Musical Director and using the words from ‘Oliver’, the choir sang they consider her to be “part of the family” and “one of us”.

The choir would like to thank all the members of the audience as the concert raised over £1,400 for The Brain Tumour Charity.

Commenting after the concert a member of the audience said: “Bravo, absolutely fabulous concert! Please tell Morag and all the choir it’s the best I’ve heard the choir sing!”
