Welcome

The Scottish Chamber Choir is at the end of an exciting and unusual season, where we have been working with three different musical directors – Iain McLarty, Steven Griffin, and Walter Thomson – on a wide variety of repertoire in diverse venues across Edinburgh and beyond. We are delighted to have had the opportunity to learn and perform with musicians of such experience and expertise. We also enjoyed working with vocal expert Scott Inglis-Kidger at a whole-day workshop in March.

Come and try us out ...

The choir is holding an Open Rehearsal at 7.15pm on Monday 12 September. Anyone interested in singing with the choir is invited to join us for the evening at Stewart’s Melville College. We will be rehearsing part of our November concert programme of Shakespeare’s music with Iain McLarty. If possible, please email our Membership Secretary at info@scottishchamberchoir.org.uk to let us know you will be coming along. You can get directions at the same time! Or you can make your own way to number 22 on this map.

An extra opportunity to hear us

Our 11 June concert, in the iconic setting of Rosslyn Chapel, was fully booked, so we have arranged a repeat at the Priory Church, Hopetoun Road, South Queensferry at 7:30pm on Friday 24 June 2016, where you can hear almost all of the Rosslyn concert. Admission is free, with a retiring collection, and you can enjoy drinks with the choir after the performance. For a downloadable flier, click the image.

If you missed us at Rosslyn and can’t come to our Queensferry concert either, do book early for our November concert: see below!

Next season

All the World’s a Stage

Shakespeare in words and music

In this co-production with The Edinburgh University Theatre Company and The Edinburgh University Shakespeare Society, we will be taking you on a musical and dramatic journey through some of the great themes of Shakespeare’s writing – Love, Death, Madness and the Supernatural – with modern choral settings of Shakespeare’s words, staged scenes from the plays, and music from composers of Shakespeare’s time.
