Deeside Singers were getting in tune to take part in a spectacular nationwide rendition of Handel’s Messiah, in this month in 1997.

The Messiah was to be performed on Saturday, October 18, at East Church in Banchory. The event was being organised by BT’s Voices for Hospices. If you have an old photograph that you would like to be included in the Nostalgia section, then email it with full details to news@deesidepiper.com
