Chapter House Singers is a very friendly SATB chamber choir of about 35 singers based in Edinburgh. We usually give two concerts a year and sing the services at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral on four-to-six Sundays during the year. Our music repertoire is broad and varied, ranging from works by living composers, such as James Macmillan and Jonathan Dove, through to madrigals, SATB arrangements of show songs and settings of Burns, to early church music.

We rehearse on Wednesdays 19.30-21.30 in the Song School and resume on Wednesday 24th August. Singers can always be found after rehearsals in Teuchter’s bar, William Street.

Open rehearsal

We are holding an open rehearsal Wednesday 7 September 19.30-21.00, to be followed by a free guided tour of the lovely Phoebe Traquair frescos in the Song School. Come along!

If  you would like to join us but can’t manage the open rehearsal, please get in touch with us via the Contact Us page. We are always interested to hear from good singers.

Choral scholarships

Next season (2022-23) we plan to offer three Choral Scholarships of up to £500 to suitable tenor or soprano voice singers subject to interviews/auditions to be held in September 2022. Basic sight-reading skills would be required but, more importantly, it would be expected that the successful applicant would regularly attend all concerts and services, plus a mutually agreed number of Wednesday evening rehearsals throughout the season. There may also be some opportunities for solo work, if appropriate.
