New! East Kilbride, Kirkintilloch and Paisley

Posted by on Feb 2, 2016

Our three new singing groups in East Kilbride, Kirkintilloch and Paisley were launched in the final week of January 2016 and went better than we could have imagined! Great numbers came and the singing was fab 🙂 Thank you so much who had the courage to come and join a new group – it was wonderful to meet you all and we hope you’ll have many happy rehearsals and performances singing with SoundRoutes! A huge thank you too, to Arlene and Bree who are leading the new choirs. They’ve worked very hard with Shona to learn and prepare for starting these new groups and we’re delighted to have such gifted musicians and singers working with us. It’s not too late to join! If you’re interested, please get in touch for more info or just turn up to one of our sessions....

Proposal Flash Mob

Posted by on Nov 15, 2015

Wow! SoundRoutes Singers from our Hamilton group were asked to perform a flash mob for a marriage proposal on a train from Glasgow to Hamilton on 14th November 2015. It was an amazing, electrifying experience for all involved. The singers happily gave up their time to rehearse and the meticulous planning paid off – for all the things that could have gone wrong, it went amazingly well 🙂 Stuart met Michelle on the very same train journey five years ago and what a romantic way to propose! Shona and the singers were understandably very nervous, but no doubt not as nervous as Stuart! Everybody enjoyed going undercover and pretending to be normal passengers until Shona began the singing at Rutherglen… Immediately the other passengers were gobsmacked, some joined in…everybody’s ears pricked up! Then the other groups of the choir joined in until the whole carriage was singing! It was an amazing atmosphere. At the end of ‘You’re Just Too Good To Be True’ the choir turned to Stuart and Michelle, who by this point had twigged that something was happening 🙂 Stuart got down on one knee and how could Michelle say no to that?! Thankfully she said yes to huge cheers and clapping before the choir burst into ‘Marry Me’ by Bruno Marrs. Congratulations Stuart and Michelle, thank you for inviting us to sing – it was a privilege to be part of such a special moment. Best wishes for your wedding and future together from Shona and all at...
