Thelma, now in her twenty-sixth year in charge of the choir, continues to instil enthusiasm and musicianship in the choir members. A former pupil of Mr William Livingstone, having studied piano, voice and organ, she had much success winning trophies at music festivals throughout the province.
Thelma followed in the tradition of the Murdoch family, as her father Jack and uncle Wilfred were lifetime members of the choir. She became guest soloist when a teenager and later took on the mantle of accompanist and then musical director.
Members appreciate the patience, enthusiasm and devotion she applies throughout the season and gain great benefit from her musical and vocal abilities
Thelma has been awarded the British Empire Medal BEM, in the Queen's New Years Honours List in 2018 for her voluntary work for over 25 years with the choir, and we congratulate and thank her most sincerely for her devotion to the choir.
