This year’s booking details are:

There will be contributions from the East Dunbartonshire Children’s Chorus and Youth Choir, the Gaelic Unit of Meadowburn PS and pupils from Merkland School. Pre-concert music will be provided by a String Ensemble and the East Dunbartonshire Schools Jazz Orchestra.
Councillor Mohrag Fischer, Convener of the Council’s Education Committee, said, "This Christmas Gala Concert is one of the highlights of the Council’s Instrumental Music Service calendar. The children have been working incredibly hard preparing for this year’s programme which boasts a wonderful selection of music and song.
"It is a fantastic event to kick-start the Christmas festivities and I would urge you to book your tickets at the earliest opportunity – you don’t want to be left disappointed."
