Carols in the Galleries
We welcome a return visit to the Upper Galleries of the RSA from the choir Cadenza! Founded in 1992, Cadenza is considered to be one of Scotland’s finest and most exciting amateur mixed voice choirs, drawing members from a wide area of central Scotland.  The choir has performed throughout Scotland and beyond, with music covering all periods and most styles.  Since twice winning the Scotland & North of England title in Choir of the Year, Cadenza has received many invitations to perform on BBC Radio and at prominent events.

Under the direction of Musical Director, Jenny Sumerling, since 2000, the choir has gone from strength to strength, attracting capacity audiences and critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe for its Greyfriars Kirk performances of major works by composers as diverse as Bach, Durufle and Rutter. As always, you are encouraged to participate fully in the carol singing!
