THE VERY BEST TIME TO JOIN A SING IN THE CITY CHOIR IS NOW!

The week of the 4th of July we start back with a brand new term. The Usher Hall show is behind us and we can relax into a new journey with new members joining, new songs and a return of old favourite songs.

Come and make new friends, improve your voice and confidence. Take a day or a night that is just for you to forget everything and just sing.

It has undoubtedly been a tough few years for everyone and now it is time to try and venture out and live our lives again. Music and singing is good for positive mental health. Making new friends is easy in our groups and taking part in fun social and musical events is possible when you join our choirs.

You can join 11 day and night choirs in Edinburgh, Fife and the Lothians.

You will sing song from all decades, improve your voice and your confidence. Take a look at where our choirs are and book in for a free trial now. Also take a look at or Facebook page and check out a few videos on our Youtube channel

Choirs

Let's get back to singing

We have managed to get 11 choirs back to room rehearsals and are welcoming new members now for free trial nights.  Don't wait a moment longer, get in touch now.  By becoming a member you will also have access to members book clubs, guitar lessons and art lessons and much more.

What is our ethos?

There is no audition process unless you are interested in the Sing in the City Aw Blacks.  

” We aim to provide a safe, warm, welcoming and inclusive rehearsal space  for members to sing at a level they choose”

We appreciate that different members join a choir for various reasons, health reasons, to make friends, to have a hobby, to sing, to perform.  It dosn't matter why you join because we pride ourselves on providing something for everyone.  We put a lot of focus on community, social and charity and you have nothing to lose by taking a FREE trial night or morning with us.  We truly aim to be much 'more than a choir'
