April 1907: Work of Langside Choral Society

An article on page thirteen of The Glasgow Herald, on Friday the 19th of April, 1907, reads:




The first annual meeting of Langside Choral Society took place in Crossmyloof Mission Hall, Pollokshaws Road.

Mr John W. Leckie presided over a large turnout of the members. The Chairman, referring to the success of the

first session of the society, said that the great result attained by the first public appearance of the chorus in

Langside Hall was a sufficient answer to the critics who thought that a choral society for Langside and district

was unnecessary. The secretary’s and treasurer’s reports were adopted. Office-bearers for the ensuing session

were elected as follows, viz. : – Hon. president, Sir John Stirling-Maxwell, Bart.; president, Mr John W. Leckie;

vice-presidents, Mr Thomas Guthrie, C.A., and Mr R. G. McCulley; hon. secretary, John D. Nicolson, 4 Kinfauns

Terrace, Ibrox; assistant secretary, M. R. Gibson; treasurer, D. C. Paterson; conductor, Dr A. Davidson Arnott;

accompanist, Mrs Dykes.”
