Troon Choir, Marr Cappella, are proud to be celebrating Christmas this year with two carols that they have recorded virtually. This has been a difficult year for everyone and for all live performance, but the choir under musical directors, Amanda Gemmell and Krista Donnelly, have taken this opportunity to sing and record online from the comfort of our living rooms!
This will be the 22nd year of Marr Cappella choir celebrating Christmas in Troon and raising £87,000 for charity in the process.
Here are two songs for you to enjoy and in response you may wish to visit Marr Capella's Just Giving page to make a donation to MS Society Scotland ( Ayrshire group). Marr Capella are extremely grateful for all donations which will go to help people living with MS in Ayrshire.
