We are a friendly, medium sized choir (60 - 70 in strength) based in Falkirk that sing a good variety of part songs, sacred, Scottish, musicals, opera and anything else we can get our hands on.
If you are interested in joining us, or wish to make an enquiry, please email [email protected] or phone one of the office bearers listed on the Contacts page. New members tend to join in August or in January, to give them time to learn our repertoire prior to the Christmas and Spring concerts. We are currently short of tenors and basses and interest from male singers would be particularly welcome. No formal music or singing experience is required, if you can "haud a tune" you'll fit in just fine.
We rehearse at Comely Park Primary School on Monday nights from August to April. We start singing at 7:30pm, and the rehearsal lasts for 2 hours, but there will be some folk there from 7:00pm if you want a chat.
Our next concert undertaking is on Wednesday 1st May in Falkirk Town Hall and will feature local violinist Rowan McGirr.
