Renowned men’s A Capella chorus The Alexandria Harmonizers are headlining a concert at the Gardyne Theatre, Broughty Ferry.
Founded in 1948 and known for their powerful vocals and thrilling performances, the Harmonizers (from Dundee’s twin town of Alexandria, USA) perform around the country and internationally, gripping audiences with their inspiring sound.
The event, sponsored by the Dundee Alexandria Twinning Association and supported by Dundee & Angus College, also features Brooke Coventry (soloist); The Dundee Gaelic Choir, the Monica McCann Irish Dancers and Finlay McKillop.
Dundee twinned with Alexandria, Virginia, in 1962 and since then many Dundonians have ‘crossed the pond’ to the USA to visit the city which stands on the western banks of the Potomac River and which is only six miles from the White House in Washington DC.
Alexandria was founded in 1749 by three Scots merchants on land purchased by Scotsman John Alexander.
Alexandria is now an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia with a population of approximately 130,000.
Each December, the Dundee Alexandria Twinning Association sends a representative to attend the Scottish Christmas walk which celebrates Alexandria’s Scottish heritage.
