The Glad Community Choir

The Glad Community Choir was started by Alexis Stearns and Rory Haye in the autumn of 2012. Based in the Southside’s vibrant, Glad Cafe, and numbering 60 – 80 members of all ages, the choir has sung a hugely varied repertoire, traditional and contemporary alike, taking in Moondog, Sacred Harp, Purcell, Ravel, Judee Sill, and Bacharach/ David, and are currently working on songs by Ivor Cutler. The choir has also recently recorded with Errors, Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat, and Meilyr Jones. At Counterflows, 20 members of the choir will perform a version of Lin Chiwei’s Tape Music Series.
