The Festival Chorus are back for their third Tryst concert and their second in Auchinleck Parish Church. Once again the performance will be led by the charismatic Eamonn Dougan, one of the great choir trainers in the land. Now a firm Tryst favourite, Eamonn will conduct the choir in some famous Mozart and Vaughan Williams. Festival Chorus Master Andrew MacTaggart joins him as soloist.
We are also pleased to have a small group back from Genesis Sixteen who will have their own slot in the concert, and the incredible virtuoso organist Kevin Bowyer who brings some music by the late Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. The choral dimension of the Tryst continues to grow and evolve and we are proud of the standards already achieved by our resident ensemble.
