Who is responsible for Acclaim Choir?


Choir Director – Elaine Kirkham

Elaine is a keen local amateur musician who has been involved in leading worship at Christian events across Highland as well as in her local church over many years. Elaine has recently retired after 35 years with The Highland Council and has a passion for music and Irish Setters! Elaine accompanies the choir both at rehearsals and concerts, leading from the piano – so there is no conductor’s baton in sight!



Choir Administrator – Moira McCarrell

Moira works with Elaine in the general running of the choir and takes responsibility for communication, looking after the accounts, organising distribution of music etc. Moira reckons “Choir Administrator” is a glorified name for General Dogsbody, a role she performs very well and takes great delight in hamming up – to the enormous amusement of the choir!
