About us – plain

InChorus is a large, vibrant, contemporary choir of all ages from Peebles in the Scottish

Borders.  We started in 2008 when 100 local singers appeared for the first auditions. It is x

testament to the enthusiasm and success of our choir that the membership numbers remain

the same today.

This is no ordinary choir. From the start we set out to be the best at what we do and we

thrive on musical adventures and new challenges. We sing a dynamic mix of contemporary,

traditional and modern classics in 4 to 8 part harmonies.   Almost all of the music we

perform is arranged by our Musical Directors, making our sound totally unique.

All our members are volunteers and give their time freely for rehearsal and performances.

The enormous spirit and heart of InChorus is as strong as our contemporary repertoire.

InChorus is a registered charity and raises funds for local and national causes.  Over the

years we have raised more than £25,000 for UK charities whilst also supporting the

fundraising efforts of other organisations too.

 

Our Performance

We thrive on delivering exciting, lively and heart-felt performances and our “infectious

enthusiasm” has entertained a wide variety of audiences, from our local community (who

give us enormous support), to corporate events, charity concerts, weddings, and music and

arts festivals.

We perform regularly throughout Southern Scotland, including sell-out concerts

at Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre and the Usher Hall.

In 2011 InChorus was asked to travel to New York in 2011 to represent Scotland at the

10th anniversary commemorations of 9/11 and performed at both the NYPD Memorial

Concert and the memorial service in the Queen Elizabeth II Garden.  This proved to be an

extremely moving and memorable experience for all who made the trip.

2013 saw us perform to a sell our audience at St Augustines as part of the Edinburgh Festival

Fringe.

In 2014 we ventured onto the competitive stage for the first time and entered the National

Choir of the Year competition where we were delighted to win a coveted ‘Choir of the Day’

award at the Scottish auditions.

 

Looking Ahead

Our performance plans for 2015 are proving to be just as exciting.  In the first half of the

year we have already performed 8 times in the Edinburgh area and the Scottish Borders,

including joint concerts in the stunning surrounds of St Giles Cathedral and Greyfriars Kirk

and also (in total contrast) on the main stage at the Eden Festival.

The choir is currently working towards a three day run at the Fringe in August 2015

(Greenside @ Nicolson Square, Venue 209).

Thereafter, we might take part in another competition just to keep our hand in.  We would

love another trip abroad, but, certainly, we want to give more large performances because

this amazing choir just loves to sing anywhere, anytime.
