After a two-year hiatus the East Dunbartonshire Schools Christmas Gala Concert is back – the annual event where hundreds of East Dunbartonshire's most talented musicians take to the stage of the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow to perform to a packed auditorium.
This will be the first Christmas Gala Concert since 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and everyone is very excited for its return. It is hoped the Secondary Schools Orchestra, Primary Schools Choir, Children's Chorus, Gaelic Unit of Meadowburn Primary School, pupils from Merkland and Campsie View Schools, Youth Choir and Schools Pipe Band will be playing to a full house..
The audience will be treated to a programme of popular orchestral music and traditional festive favourites and pre-concert music will be provided by a String Ensemble from selected Primary Schools and the newly formed Junior Brass Band.

Councillor Lynda Williamson, Convener of the Council’s Education Committee, said, “I am delighted the spectacular East Dunbartonshire Christmas Gala Concert is back this year – it is a wonderful event that kicks off the festivities perfectly and an opportunity to showcase our extremely talented young people.
“Our dedicated Instrumental Music Service has been tutoring and supporting our young musicians and singers throughout the year, preparing them for this performance on a stage that has attracted acts from all over the world. For many of the young people this will be their first performance at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow – something they’ll never forget.
"I am very much looking forward to what promises to be a fantastic show and I would urge family and friends of our young performers to book their tickets at the earliest opportunity so as not to miss out!”
