The Dalkeith Singers welcome new members! Rehearsals are held at St Nicholas Buccleuch Church Hall on Thursdays from 1930-2130.
The Semi-Chorus meets at 1830 before rehearsals to work on our standing repertoire.
The Dalkeith Singers is a choir that meets regularly in Dalkeith to:
- Present choral concerts of both classical and contemporary repertoire,
- Enhance the musical life of the area,
- Provide opportunities for singers to perform, learn and socialise.
Our Promise to Members:
- We provide a supportive and productive environment.
- We support you in improving your singing and musicianship, both in vocal quality and vocal health as well as music theory and learning to read music.
- We value and respect your commitment.
- We expect all members to support one another, to be respectful to one another and to represent the choir well.
- We expect members to practise music between rehearsals, guided by the musical director, learning both words and music with the provided vocal tracks and scores.
- We expect members to learn to hold their part (to be able to sing their line against the 3 others), follow direction and attend sufficient rehearsals.
