The first rehearsal of Zimbe! will take place on Wednesday night

Budding singers who have signed up for Hawick’s first-ever African influenced choir are asked to attend the high school’s lecture hall at 7pm.

Jim Letham, conductor, said: “We’ve been greatly encouraged by the wonderful response. Although we have almost 50 singers, we could do with a few more men to help balance the sound.If you still have the notion to take part in this musical phenomenon, which has really galvanised the town, then come along on Wednesday – but this will be your last chance!”

The cost is £18 per singer, cheques payable to Hawick High School. More info from Gordon Macdonald on 376388.

The curtain will rise on Zimbe! on Tuesday, June 24, in Teviot church.
