We’re currently looking for new singers –especially sopranos. If you’d like to give us a try before deciding whether to apply for an audition, come along informally to one of our Tuesday evening rehearsals at St Cuthbert’s Parish Church, Lothian Road, and see what you think.
Our new term started on Tuesday 1 September at 7.30pm but you’re welcome to come along on any Tuesday after that. So that we can welcome you and provide more information on how to join us, please contact the Choir Secretary for more details.
(The choir)…” delivered a vocal crescendo that provoked a prickle of goose bumps, and a desire to close your eyes and lose yourself in the glorious sound …. “When it finished, I just wanted to hear it all over again ” (Scotsman March 2014)
