The Pentland Singers is a locally based community choir which has been singing in the area for 30 years. It consists of an adult choir numbering approximately 85 singers drawn primarily from Balerno, Currie, Juniper Green and Colinton areas, and a junior choir of around 30 children drawn mainly from local schools. The Pentland Singers is a registered charity and donates to local charities each year with some of the proceeds from our concerts. The choir performs concerts in the local community at least twice a year and it participates in the Balerno Music Festival.
The Singers approached CBDRT for funding to buy staging for 80 people, to replace their old, worn-out and potentially less safe arrangements. CBDRT was delighted to help, as they see the value in community groups such as the choir, which also raises money for good causes.
