Innerleithen’s Tweed Valley Male Voices are to host their first major public performance this Saturday in St Ronan’s Primary School.

Formed just over a year ago, the choir was set up by a group keen to explore male voice choral harmonies.

Founded and led by experienced choral director, Helen Furness, Tweed Valley Male Voices include members who all sing in other choirs or the local opera, and have developed an extensive repertoire of songs, both accompanied and a cappella.

A spokesperson for TVMV said: “With their song choices reflecting their varied ages, backgrounds and interests, the choir will perform an entertaining set including show tunes, traditional and sacred songs, and blues, pop and folk genres.

“Their humorous arrangements of nursery rhymes are sure to bring the house down.”

The evening will also feature St Ronan’s Future Band as guest artists.

Conducted by David Robb, this young group are fresh from successfully supporting the senior band at its spring concert last month, and will be performing some new pieces especially for this concert.

The night, which starts at 7.30pm, will be hosted by St Ronan’s PTA, with a bar and refreshments available.

Tickets (£5) are now available at the Tweeddale Thrift Shop or Robert Smail’s Printing Works in Innerleithen, The Sweet Shop, Peebles or on the door.

Proceeds will be divided between both groups.
