ACCORD is a small, friendly group of women who love to create a beautiful sound, while also having lots of fun together. We are a fun and informal choir, but we also like to work hard on our repertoire, which is in 3-part harmony and we love learning new pieces, including jazz, folk, modern pop, show tunes and classical; you can see a list of our pieces here Repertoire.
We are led by our fabulous and inspirational musical director Helen Robbie, BMus (Hons), and accompanied by our wonderfully accomplished pianist , Jun Chan.
If you are interested in joining ACCORD, full information can be found here Join Accord. You don’t have to have prior experience of singing in a choir. All we ask is that you can sing in tune, have a genuine interest in singing, and are willing to learn new pieces and have fun. Before joining the choir there is a small, informal audition to assess how your voice fits with the style of music we sing.
If you would like to try out with us why not pop along to one of our rehearsals on Thursdays at 7:30pm in St Columba’s church hall, Newington, Edinburgh EH9 1SN
We are National Lottery-funded and our performances regularly include the annual Christmas concert in the National Museum of Scotland.
