Choirs

Singing works wonders for positive mental health

We have 12 choirs rehearsing in Edinburgh, Fife and Lothian 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?

” 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'

The only choir that has an audition process are our Aw Blacks (the choir that wear black).  All our other choirs, you just turn up and sing.
