SDSO’s Opening Meeting at Kippen

Kippen Parish Church

The SDSO opened its 2017 – 2018 at Kippen Parish Church with Morley Whitehead who took the society on a journey through Advent Music. Morley gave everyone hints, tips and suggestions about how to include advent music in our playing as well as including some interesting anecdotes about his own experiences. He demonstrated various styles from across the centuries and played a variety of composers including Flor Peeters, Kenneth Leighton and J.S.  Bach.
It was a well – attended afternoon and a good opening to our season.
