Kirsty said: "It was great to have the members back out doing what they love and seeing all the smiling faces.

"It felt just like being back at work and doing what Sing in the City does best.

"We have been rehearsing for the last 15 months on zoom and we have proved it works because we managed to have three brilliant outdoor rehearsals in The Glen on Saturday, however being back together outside was very special.

Fife Sing in the City choirs came together recently to sing at outdoor rehearsals.

“During our lockdown months, we have continued to provide online activities for our members and we also started our own Radio Station - Chief Radio which broadcasts live from both Edinburgh and Dunfermline and already has 10,000 listeners across central Scotland. You can tune in daily from 7:00am at and find us on various phone apps and get us on your smart speaker.

Lockdown had been very tough for everyone, but we have kept people connected and we have kept people singing and much of what we have learned we will take forward with us as we return to some form of normality."

Sing in the City hope to be back singing indoors again very soon. If you would like any information on joining us please email: [email protected]
