Sing Lanrik, Clydesdale’s new community singing group held their first meeting last week - and it was packed!
It seems there are quite a few who can hold a tune in Lanark and the surrounding areas, or who simply want to be part of a community organisation which will allow them to hone what talents they have for singing.
Under the expert guidance of local professional musician Shenna Fox, Sing Lanrik was born out of a necessity to provide a group which caters to all ages and musical tastes as opposed to the formality of a choir.
The new group is open to anyone, whether they have any singing experience or not, and covers a wide variation in music, from modern pop to the classics and everything in between.
Shenna told the Gazette: “I was absolutely delighted to see such a great turn out for the inaugural meeting of Sing Lanrik. We had a good mix of beginners and experienced singers who came along.
“If you would like to join us come along this Sunday, August 26 from 4-5pm at the Harry Smith Complex in Lanark.”
For more information you can follow the group on Facebook at Sing Lanrik or on twitter: @SingLanrik or email them at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Membership of the community singing organisation is free.
