The Aw Blacks was the first and original choir that Kirsty Baird started back in April 2010. She was the vocal coach at Edinburgh Council and decided to put her classes together and start a choir.
The Aw Blacks are a semi professional group and is the only auditioned choir in Sing in the City.
Singers wanting to join the Aw Blacks must go through a singing and movement audition and understand that the commitiment and criteria for this choir is a lot higher than the other choirs.
The rehearsals are longer and more often and they have frequent shows and events to prepare for.
