Prospective Members

Sing with the Edinburgh Royal Choral Union

The Edinburgh Royal Choral Union rehearses on Tuesdays from 7.30pm to 9.45pm (with a short break for tea and biscuits) in Augustine United Church.

The 2014-15 season is nearly at an end, with rehearsals now well underway for our spring concerts.  However, newcomers are always welcome, so please get in touch if you would like to come along to a rehearsal.

Newcomers are usually invited to attend a few rehearsals in the first instance, to see how you get on. If you decide you would like to join the choir, an audition will be arranged after a few weeks. While we recognise that auditioning can often be a nerve-racking process, we try to ensure that it is as informal as possible. You will be asked to prepare something to sing (this can be a song, a hymn, perhaps even one one of the pieces we have been rehearsing ), along with some sight-reading. The Chorus Director will usually do some simple vocal exercises to see what voice part you should join.

If you are interested in joining the choir, please email the New Members’ Secretary.
