Largs Community Choir – About Us

 

Largs Community Choir formed in September 2012 and has been going strong ever since. It has become an important part of the wide range of musical opportunities in our beautiful seaside town of Largs, North Ayrshire.

 

The choir welcomes singers aged 18 or over, of all levels of ability and experience. You do not need to be able to read music and there are no auditions. All you need is enthusiasm and a willingness to work hard and have fun,

Our repertoire is wide ranging from Swedish love songs to South African freedom songs, folk, gospel, pop, sea shanties, hymns and even country songs.

There is no requirement to read music and there are no auditions.

We sing in a capella style without instrumental accompaniment.

We rehearse every Thursday evening in the Brisbane Evangelical Hall, School St., Largs KA30 8BB from 6.45 pm to 8.45pm. Then you are welcome to join us for post rehearsal drinks at The Anchor Bar.

We perform regularly throughout the year, formally and informally, including at our coffee morning in November 2017, and most recently in the beautiful Cathedral Of the Isles which formed a culmination of a weekend packed with workshops.

We perform with other choirs including Sonoro, the community choir from our neighbouring Isle of Cumbrae.

There are lots of opportunities for socialising including regular Christmas outings. We also undertake training including as part of the Scotland Sings project and Singing for Pleasure.

The fees are currently £30.00 per 10 week term.

You are very welcome to come along for a free trial session to see if you like what we do.

Once a member you will have access to the Members’ Only section of this website, full of songs, music, practice notes and singing tips.
