Flash Mob Proposal
We rehearse weekly for our Christmas and summer concerts but also get fun opportunities for other performances. Last year some members from our Hamilton group were invited flash mob a marriage proposal on the Glasgow to Hamilton train! SoundRoutes Singers took everyone by surprise and with the whole train carriage joining in – the atmosphere was electric! Stuart got down on one knee to pop the question and how could Michelle say no?! Footage went viral with almost one million views.
Congratulations Stuart and Michelle 🙂
Please do get in touch for more info or come along to give SoundRoutes a try – our video from a previous summer concert will also give an idea of what we normally prepare for week-to-week (right hand column).
