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.

The choir always welcomes new members to join us in our music-making and enjoyable exploration, and we would encourage applications from all voice parts, even though from time to time there may be waiting lists. To find out about singing with us, email info@scottishchamberchoir.org.uk
