Come & Sing International

Sing with the Edinburgh Festival Chorus

A unique opportunity to experience an afternoon of singing under the baton of inspirational and award-winning Chorus Master Christopher Bell.

Do you love singing? Would you like the chance to sing some of classical music’s most iconic choral pieces, led by a wonderfully expressive conductor?

If so, come along and sing with members of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus.

The Chorus has performed with the world's leading conductors and orchestras. This is an unique opportunity to experience an afternoon of singing under the baton of inspirational and award-winning Chorus Master Christopher Bell. Over the afternoon you will explore and rehearse parts of Mahler’s Symphony of a Thousand, Vaughan Williams's Sea Symphony and Verdi's Requiem.

A score will be provided for each work and the ability to read music is essential.

Registrations for this event are now closed.

Non singers are welcome to listen to the results of the session free at 5pm, when all the extracts will be performed. This part of the event is unticketed and seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
