In September 2019 the choir was awarded the Rural Scotland Adopt a Composer funding to work with Aileen Sweeney on a new composition for the choir. Following workshops with the choir, Aileen composed Breathing Place with words written by Martin Raymond reflecting choir members' love for the area in which they live. This performance was scheduled for 31st May 2020, postponed due to Covid restrictions and 18 months later we are able to perform again. Concert is part of the Helensburgh Parish Church Sunday @7 programme and will start with Vivaldi's Gloria.
Rural Scotland Adopt a Composer scheme is run by Making Music in partnership with Sound and Music, in association and funded by Creative Scotland and the Philip and Dorothy Green Music Trust. This performance will be recorded
