Well loved community choir Cairn Chorus bring their family friendly Spring concert to Dumfries. In the beautiful setting of the Crichton gardens, follow their Pied Piper harper through the Tree Trail by the Rock Garden, to a special performance area near the pond for our celebration of all things arboreal.
The hour long programme was inspired by the late Sam Todd who lived in Moniaive, Glencairn, where Cairn Chorus are based. He quietly planted hundreds if not thousands of trees in the area. ’Sing for the Trees’ is a song cycle filled with sung poetry from Rudyard Kipling to Wendell Berry, celebrating the lives of all types of trees and the importance and fragility of the beautiful landscape that surrounds us.
Feel free to bring your own blanket and a picnic to enjoy while you listen, stay awhile afterwards to explore the garden to more harping and experience a wonderful and inspiring afternoon out.
