West Lothian 50+ Network The Network Singers

The Network Singers

Group Leader: Vanda Collins
Meet: Thursday evenings, 7.00pm to 8.30pm in the Answer Centre, Whitburn

The Network Singers have been in existence for about seven years and will shortly have a permanent home for their concerts in Armadale Church Hall. The choir consists of a group of men and women who enjoy singing together. There is no audition when joining the choir – only enthusiasm and a feeling for enjoyment are required! At the moment membership stands at 34 and there is no waiting list. Members pay £5 a month to cover the cost of hall rental and other expenses. We socialise at choir dinners, beetle drives, quizzes, special birthdays, etc.

Our excellent Musical Director is Yvonne Drummond whose energy and drive inspires us all. She has worked wonders with us. Her aim is for us to present a concert roughly every eighteen months. These concerts have been produced with a choir of school children joining The Network Singers.

We also sing in local residential care homes and at some West Lothian 50+ Network functions, as well as having a Carol Concert at Christmas for Network members.

We meet on Thursday evenings, taking time off at Christmas, Easter and during the summer holidays. Where possible, we share cars which means that non drivers can usually be accommodated. Cars travel from the Livingston, Bathgate, Armadale and West Calder areas.

A choir committee deals with concert programmes, future events, resources, etc.
Anyone interested in joining the choir or seeking further information regarding it should initially contact the 50+ Network office.
