We are always looking for new members of all ages, especially in the male voice sections of the choir.
Although we are a non-auditioned choir we still aim to maintain high standards. If you are not sure which voice section of the choir you should be singing in, please talk to our Musical Director for advice.
You don't have to be able to sight-read, but a reasonable ability to read music would help (and, of course, the ability to sing in tune).
Excuses for not joining
I've never been in a choir -----(Yippee!! We can train you our way!)
Being an amateur choir, our two main sources of income are ticket sales and an annual subscription. This rate varies depending on certain circumstances and you will be informed of the applicable rate when you join. The current subscription is £15 per term.
Every Tuesday at the Gillespie Centre , Biggar at 7.45pm
"TAKE UP SINGING "
Choral singing increases immunity, reduces depression, improves cognitive function and mood, and increases feelings of wellbeing, according to research at the University of Western Ontario.
It can also stop the voice from ageing. Work at Sydney University shows singing helps people cope with chronic pain better, while a University of Frankfurt team found choral singing lowers stress levels and boosts the immune system.
A survey of singers by Canterbury Christ Church University shows they had improved lung function and breathing.
