SMG students sing to the Queen's Baton

Congratulations to Wendy Carle Taylor who lead a group of singers, including students from her Singing for Fun class, who sang 'Here’s to our Common Wealth’ in the Scottish Parliament on Saturday 14 June on the Queen’s Baton’s visit to Edinburgh.

This new song was specially written in Scots, Gaelic and English by Phil Cunningham, Karine Polwart, Ali Burns and Findlay Napier for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this summer. The Big Song Relay is produced by Hands Up For Trad as part of the Big Big Sing, produced by Glasgow UNESCO City of Culture.
