Our concert plans are on hold, including our new year performance of Messiah at the Usher Hall on 2 January and the premiere of a new commission, “Water Psalms”, by contemporary American composer Thomas LaVoy, which was written for the 400th anniversary of the opening of Greyfriars Kirk for worship. We look forward to welcoming back our audiences when Scottish Government guidance allows us to meet safely together to rehearse and perform.
In the meantime we continue to hold 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.
For more details or to join us for an online rehearsal, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coming up this season...
Concert details will be announced when we are able to rehearse and perform safely in accordance with Scottish Government guidelines.
