We have exciting concert plans for the new season, including the premiere of a new commission by gifted contemporary American composer Thomas LaVoy, written for the 400th anniversary of Greyfriars Kirk. The timing of our concerts will be confirmed when Scottish Government guidelines allow us to meet safely together to rehearse and perform.
In the meantime we are holding online rehearsals on Tuesdays at 7.30 pm.
We are looking for new members to join the ERCU family. If you would like to join our renowned choir in Edinburgh, why not take part in some online sessions to try us out? New singers in all voice parts are welcome to join us throughout the season, which runs from September to May or early June.
Our Tuesday online meetings feature extensive vocal coaching sessions with some of the best singing professionals around. Join us as we rehearse for the premiere of our new commission and future concerts and prepare for the time when we can perform Messiah at the Usher Hall again.
If you enjoy these sessions and would like to audition, we can arrange a provisional online audition with our chorus director Michael Bawtree.

Coming up this season...
Concert details will be announced when we are able to rehearse and perform safely in accordance with Scottish Government guidelines.
