In 2007 Elspeth Howie, who previously sang as a soprano with the choir, took over as conductor.In 2015 the conductor's baton was passed to Norma MacDougall, a long time friend of the Choir with a vast knowledge Gaelic music experience and choir conducting . In 2016 we welcomed Siobhan McAuley as our next conductor.
