We are a very friendly, secular Edinburgh singing group with no auditions and no music to read. Everyone with a willingness to sing is welcome – whether untrained or musical scholars – it’s especially for people who want to sing, but feel in some way scared to – “I can’t Singers”! You can come along on a drop in basis or pay for multiple sessions at once. We aim to be accessible and flexible.
Our singing style varies hugely from song to song – whether it’s a blues number, a Georgian folk song, a Sami yoik, a Beach Boys hit or a gentle African lullaby. You’ll get to learn all the parts for a harmony, not just one, so you can play with singing different parts and even switch parts while we’re singing if you want to… We’re not a performing choir, so there’s no pressure and it’s a safe space for you to find your voice and try different singing styles.
Penny Stone is our incredible, charismatic teacher who specialises in voice production and encourages us to experiment, play, have fun and be creative.
We meet up weekly on Thursdays from 1830-2030 (6.30pm to 8.30pm) at Eric Liddell centre on Morningside Road, Edinburgh, Scotland and anyone is welcome to come along.
We suggest you bring a bottle of water as singing can be thirsty work, though there are facilities available if you forget.
Hope you can join us!
We are self funding and cover all our costs from our subs. We are also an open group and we think everyone should have the chance to sing, regardless of their ability to pay.
For this reason we don’t have fixed rules for concession eligibility. Please make sure to pay the full rate if you can, however if the full rate would prevent you from coming, do use the concession. Whichever sub you pay, if you are a little more flush some weeks, then please feel free to put a top up in the donations box – this helps us keep our concessionary rates as low as possible, for those who really need them.
We offer a first “taster” session for £5, thereafter it’s £8 (concessions £5) drop in, or £35 for five sessions (to be used within 2 calendar months – if you miss the odd session we understand, we want you to come back!).
