Class A churches have more than 200 members and B churches less than 200. In this district festival all singers who took part in the group festival are eligible to sing if they learn the music. This means a great Class A chorus singing—the two A selections will sing together, and the B choirs will sing their two selections hi another big chorus under the direction of Prof. Paul MacCollln of Moringside college.
