To the huge delight of our audiences, drawn from both local residents to regular visitors from over 50 miles away, we aim to perform choral works of the highest quality with professional orchestras and soloists.

This website will help you to find out further information about the choir, both our future performances and information for potential new members. In addition to our large scale concerts we also undertake a number of charity concerts in venues from Stirling to Haddington and if you are interested in the choir performing in your area please feel free to contact us. In May 2016 our concert at Wellington Church in Glasgow raised £649 for the Douglas McKerrell Prize at the Scottish International Piano Competition. In the Helensburgh and Lomond Community Spirit Awards 2010, the Choir was awarded a finalist's certificate under the Lifetime Achievement Award, reflecting the choir's ongoing contribution to the civic life of the area.

Enjoy this site as a gateway to high quality, live, choral music.
