We're a non-audition community choir based in Falkirk – and whether performing in concert halls or care homes, we always try to spread joy through song!
We aim to support each other to reach our creative potential, and to sing together because it makes us feel good. Group singing can, and does, change lives – the social, physical and emotional benefits are substantial.
Based in Tamfourhill Community Centre, Falkirk, we used to meet most Wednesday afternoons from 2.30 – 4.30 pm to sing together, with a pay-what-you-can-afford approach with members paying £2 - 5 per session. Each rehearsal session included physical and vocal warm ups, learning new repertoire, singing through old favourites and a break to socialise and enjoy a hot drink and a biscuit!
With support from Creative Scotland, we became an independent community choir in April 2019. It was our aim to become self sustaining by March 2021 (when that funding runs out), but unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic scuppered many of our plans for singing together, growing the choir and fundraising through an Edinburgh Fringe show and a Christmas Concert!
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, our Music Directors, Mariot Dallas and Kim Edgar, have been supporting us to keep singing from our own homes through a variety of YouTube sessions and interactive Zoom sessions. But not everyone in the choir has internet access, or a device to get online.
We'd appreciate any donation you can give us to help us build up a library of devices to loan out to ensure all of our members can take part in our online sessions.
If becoming a Choir Angel or an Incredible Helper is something you'd like to do, then please select the appropriate reward.
Or if you'd like to donate a different amount of your own choosing, then simply click the 'donate' button instead.
You can also help us greatly by sharing our project with your friends and family, to help us spread the word (you can use the social media sharing icons on this page).
Thanks for helping us to meet the challenges of the pandemic until we can get back to relative normality! Every penny is very much appreciated.
Please contact Music Director Kim Edgar by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to support us in the longer term, or are interested in joining the choir.
