Happy 10th birthday
INVERKEITHNY Kirk Preservation Trust will be holding its first event a week on Sunday.
The Trust is celebrating the 10th year of its ownership of the church building and the 10th visit of Longside Parish Church Choir and friends.
The choir's programme will include part of a longer work 'The Baron o Braikley' which has been written in Doric by Les Wheeler of Maud.
It has been set for the choir by Longside’s conductor Gordon M Hay, himself an Inverkeithny loon.
The complete work was recently premiered in King’s College Chapel Aberdeen as part of Aberdeen University’s Mayfest.
The choir’s male voice quartet will also be performing some favourites from its repertoire.
A “birthday surprise” as well as refreshments will follow the concert.
Inverkeithny Parish Church was sold off by the Church of Scotland in 2009 and was acquired under a charitable trust by a group of locals who maintain the building and make it available for services, weddings and funerals.
It has a beautiful setting, nestling in a corner of the Deveron valley and can be stunning in a June evening: well worth a visit.
Entry to the event which is being held from 7pm on Sunday, June 9, is by donation at the door.
All proceeds will go towards the upkeep of the building.
