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 Eucharist and Evensong 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 liturgical music and a cappella polyphony to madrigals, arrangements of show songs, Christmas music and settings of Burns.
We rehearse on Wednesdays 19.30-21.30 in the Song School. Singers can always be found after rehearsals in Teuchter’s bar, William Street.
If you would like to join us, please get in touch with us via the Contact Us page. We are always interested to hear from good singers. Entry to the choir is by an informal audition.
This season we are offering Choral Scholarships of up to £500 to suitable tenor voice singers subject to interviews/auditions. 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.
