The concert at Dunkeld carthedral was in aid of the fundrasing appeal for the cathedral itself – specifically for funds to enable the interior lighting to be ugraded so that the magnificent wood carving details in the roof can be better seen and appreciated by visitors and worshippers. The choir was supported for the concert by members of a local school who performed both traditional Scottish choral work and a selection of folk songs.

The Concert at Dunblane was in support of the Leprosy Misson in Scotland appeal and the choir was supported by musicians from Dunblane High School, none of whom had performed in public prior to this.
