"In collaboration with University of St Andrews, University of St Andrews Music Centre, and St Andrews Music Club, on the 22nd June we will be singing from the rooftops as we welcome vocal ensemble Voces8 to town for a busy few days of workshops and performances! The whole Voces8 family share our ethos of inspiring people through the joy of singing, and we are delighted that the group will work with student acapella singers, young composers, and also our Singing for Lung Health participants, as well as presenting a free to view, live stream performance from the new McPherson Recital Room.

 

Clear your diaries, tell your friends, join us! #SingingStAndrews"
