Since its creation in 1996, the Faculty Choir has raised tens of thousands of pounds for the homeless in Edinburgh and under the direction of Advocates Ross Macfarlane and Neil Beynon, The Choir has sung all over the world, with performances in the Vatican, Notre-Dame de Paris and Off-Broadway.
Ross Macfarlane, Artistic Director, says: “We had no idea when we started that the Christmas concert would become such an institution in Edinburgh and we’re delighted to do this for such a good cause. I think that this year will be particularly good since we have a range of great readings and readers, and lots of popular carols for the audience to sing.”
The Faculty Choir will also feature this Thursday 11th December at the National Library of Scotland’s “Christmas Fair” from 6pm.
