Voicebeat is celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2017/18. That's right, we're almost old enough to drive a moped, or vote in a Scottish local election.
Celebrations started with a well-attended Fifteenth Anniversary Concert at Renfield St Stephen's Church on Bath St on 25 November.

As well as celebrating 15 years by singing some favourite songs from our extensive repertoire, we launched our new CD and our Friends of Voicebeat scheme, talked about the history of Voicebeat with Frances Hume, who led the group from 2007 to 2009, ate cake and drank tea.
A recent count of languages we've sung in over the years goes over 40. Under our present songleader we've sung 85 songs. At the concert we had time for just a dozen languages. No fewer than ten singers sang in a "semichorus", where a smaller group steps out from the choir to sing a verse by themselves.
