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.
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
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
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.
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.
