Sounds International is back in action on Sunday (November 1) in aid of two good causes.

The Stamperland-based community choir hops the M8 to the stunning surrounds of Garnethill Synagogue, one of Glasgow’s A-listed landmark buildings.

Sponsored by Glasgow jewellers Mr Harold & Son, the choir will be singing for East Renfrewshire Good Causes, as well as a donation to the synagogue.

The local charity funds good deeds for East Ren’s most vulnerable, and founder Russell Macmillan is delighted to have the support of Sounds International.

He told The Extra: “It is wonderful that so many people that make up this fantastic singing group are keen to support the work of ER Good Causes.

“Not only does this group bring people together to produce such a marvellous sound, but they also help to love love our neighbours in East Ren.”

Choir founder and musical director Eddie Binnie will lead the way, accompanied by 19-year-old music student Richard Scholfield, making the most of the synagogue’s wonderful acoustics.

Normally only open to the public by special arrangement, it’s a chance to admire the architecture while indulging in two hours of song — including a medley from Fiddler on the Roof.

The show starts at 3pm and tickets are £10, available on the door at 129 Hill Street — for more info, visit www.singglasgow.co.uk.
