Shoestring date is all tied up

OPERA lovers will be pleased to learn that Melrose Music Society’s December concert, which fell victim to the bad weather, has been rearranged for 7.30pm tomorrow.

The concert in Melrose Parish Church Hall by Glasgow-based Opera on a Shoestring will consist largely of well known and loved arias.

Opera on a Shoestring is an independent company formed 15 years ago to promote the genre in Scotland.

The singers, Judith Gardner Jones (soprano), Kathryn Hannah (mezzo-soprano), Bjartmar Sigurdsson (tenor) and Phil Gault (baritone) will be accompanied on the piano by Ruth Wilkinson.

Tickets for this concert, priced at £12 for non-members, will be available on the door. Further information may be obtained at
