Colinton and Merchiston Choir was established in 1996 and currently has around 25 sopranos, 30 altos, 5 tenors and 10 basses.

New members are always welcome, and as you will see from these numbers, new gentlemen would be particularly welcomed! Auditions are not required.

A large range of ages is represented in the choir, and most members live locally or are connected with Merchiston Castle School in some way - but there is no requirement for either!

There is an equally large range of musical experience and ability. Members are expected to attend most rehearsals, and to sing in the concerts.
The Choir normally performs major works from the classical choral repertoire, though it occasionally makes ventures into lighter music, such as songs from shows or opera. Concerts are usually accompanied by an organist.

The choir rehearses from September to March each year, on Monday evenings from 7.30-9pm in the Music School at Merchiston Castle School, Colinton, Edinburgh.
