usher Hall Concert

Primary 7 will be taking part in this fabulous event again this year at the Usher Hall. It is always inspiring to see the talented musicians from James Gillespie’s High School.  It is even more amazing to hear the Primary 7 choir made up of young people from all the feeder primaries: James Gillespie’s, Sciennes, Tollcross, Preston Street, Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pàirce and Royal Mile, singing together on stage.

We hope very much all of our young people will be there to represent the school and that you will come  along and enjoy the concert.
