The planned concert had to be postponed during the pandemic in 2020.

Now with the event coming up next month at the Macdonald Drumossie Hotel, Carol Brown, the choir's chairman, said: "We are so excited to be performing our postponed Centenary Concert from 2020 at last!

"Several new members have joined us since we were able to sing again and now our membership has risen to 100.

"Our conductor is Gordon Tocher and our accompanist is Adrian Marple. They make a very strong partnership to lead us through rehearsals!

"We will be accompanied by the Highland Sinfonia."

The professional soloists who will be joining the choir for the concert are soprano Jessica Leary, tenor William Searle and Colin Murray, bass.

Tickets for the event – available on the Inverness Choral Society website – are priced £15, with under 16s free.

Limited tickets will be available at the door.

Inverness Choral Society is one of the largest choirs in the Highlands and draws singers from a wide area around Inverness. It presents two main concerts a year, in spring and autumn. Every festive season, they also hold their singing marathon – the Christmas Carolthon – in aid of a local charity in mid-December.

This year the carolthon will be on Saturday, December 16 in the Eastgate Centre, Inverness. The choir's charity partner for 2023 is the Crocus Group which provides bereavement support for children and young people aged five to 18 across the Highlands.
