Happy New Year everyone! Very warm greetings from Beith Arts committee members.  We have four more concerts to look forward to in the remainder of the2015-16 season, and they are going to be very good ones.  We start off on Sunday 31st January with the wonderful Glasgow Chamber Choir, who will be singing for us for the very first time.  This is going to be a brilliant concert so don't miss it.

N.B. This concert will be held in Beith Parish Church, Kirk Road, Beith, at 2.30pm., so the choir will be accompanied by the organ for some of their items.

The next concert, on 28th February, and back in the Community centre, will be very different in content and style, but equally brilliant in performance. We will all be delighted to hear Quattro MacJazz again, and tap our feet to their classic jazz, gospel and blues.  Be sure to tell your jazz-loving friends, it's not every day you hear music like this!

Our March 6th concert will be very different again.  We have been so fortunate to book the very well-known and much-admired concert pianist, Murray McLachlan, to perform  for us, on a concert grand piano brought in for the occasion!  As well as playing solo piano for most of the concert, he will also hold a Masterclass with three talented young pianists from Glengarnock Academy, which will be very interesting.  He helps up-and-coming pianists in this way whenever he can, because he is very determined that they should have the opportunity to play with professionals to improve and refine their technique.  And we will all benefit from watching him at work with these youngsters, and from hearing the results.

The last concert of this season will bring back one of our favourite singing groups - do you remember "Les Sirenes" and their brilliant director Andrew Nunn?  This will be their third visit to us, and will be as enjoyable as the others - and with a few laughs along the way! Definitely not to be missed.  Make a note of the date: 24th April.

In June we will be holding our annual Art Exhibition, showing the amount of talent that is alive and well in our area.  Details of this event will be on this website nearer the time.  Until then, enjoy all the concerts still to come.
