The Story of Castle Chorus
A community choir
Castle Chorus was started in 2015 and is an Edinburgh based mixed voice choir, which is part of the Natural Voice Network.
Led by Caroline Overy, we sing a big range of great songs without accompaniment, including some contemporary folk and some more traditional and roots type music, with a splash of jazz and some more experimental things too.
We also collaborate with Edinburgh-based songwriters and musicians to perform beautiful new arrangements of fresh songs, so we’re at the start of an interesting and exciting journey!
We are a non-audition choir and rehearsals are open to anybody who enjoys singing (no need to read music), as well as the odd slice of cake during break and a pint after rehearsals.
In the last two years we have performed our own sell-out Christmas carol concerts and a programme of carols at Rosslyn Chapel, as well as several relaxed pub and music festival gigs. We’ve been highly commended in the Chorus Awards, sung as part of an Edinburgh Book Festival play, and been featured on BBC Radio Scotland and Castle FM.
We sing from 6.30 - 8.30 pm on Thursday evenings in a rehearsal space in central Edinburgh. If you’re interested in coming along, get in touch! We're always looking for new friendly faces who love singing.
