Sing With Us

The Edinburgh Singers is an indepedent, auditioned choir attracting singers of all ages and from every walk of life and we are always on the look out for enthusiastic and talented singers.

How many concerts do we sing?

We typically perform three main concerts a year (autumn, December, summer), with occasional extras, such as contributing to the BBC's Songs of Praise or carol singing for various organisations.

How often do we rehearse?

We rehearse once a week, on a Thursday evening, in central Edinburgh. Typically, there is also a longer, daytime rehearsal on a weekend before each main concert.  In addition, each section (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) arranges sectional rehearsals from time to time.  Any extra performances will have dedicated rehearsals by arrangement.

How do I join? 

We aim to audition new at regular points throughout the year.   Please contact us and tell us your voice part (Soprano, Alto, Tenor or Bass) and a little bit about your singing history, and we'll get in touch to arrange an audition.

Do you need to be able to read music?

Yes, we do expect all members to be able to read music, and to sight-read at least a bit, so that we can learn music more quickly.
