For the past two years, one of the highlights of our summer at Dynamic Meladies has been the opportunity to perform at the Strawberry Tea event run by the charity Mothers Care India.
This year, with the world in lockdown and live performance impossible for the moment, we decided to move the festivities online.
Keeping our classes running during lockdown (Bless you, Zoom!) has been really important to us, and connecting with and singing with our ladies every week has helped all of us through a strange and difficult time.
On Saturday 1st February 2020, we had the opportunity to perform at a multicultural Burns celebration event being run by the Central and West Integration Network. Attendees were treated to a traditional meal of haggis and heard a recitation of a couple of Burns poems ("To A Louse" and "To A Mouse") as well as a short history of the life of the Scottish bard.
On Wednesday 11th December 2019, Dynamic Meladies sang a selection of Christmas carols and songs at Braehead Shopping Centre in aid of Breast Cancer Now. It was lovely to share the festive spirit and we had a great time singing for Christmas shoppers. Thank you to everyone who stopped to listen and donated to help Breast Cancer Now.

On Sunday 9th June 2019, we performed at a fundraising event at Gavin's Mill in Milngavie. In addition to having fun singing at the event, we also got to sample the very fine scones served in the cafe!
On Saturday 8th June 2019 we took part in a Strawberry Tea event for the charity Mothers Care India. This was a return visit for us to this event, as we also performed for the charity last June. We were fortunate in finishing our set just before a heavy downpour but, as we sat down at our table in the marquee, the rain started to pour through the roof directly above us, soaking everything in sight! The heavy rain, outside and inside, led to a mass singing of (and some dancing to) Singing In The Rain!
