NYCoS Inverness Choir

What happens at NYCoS Inverness Choir?

In the first year, Training Choir meets for 1 hour every week during term time, where they learn and sing together. In years after, this increases to a 2.5 - 3 hour rehearsal per week.

But being part of a NYCoS Area Choir isn't just about singing in a group; our unique musicianship programme helps to develop skills such as learning to read music, pitching, rhythm, sound production, solo singing and simple theory.

There are concerts for family and friends twice a year, where choir members showcase all they have learned.

NYCoS Inverness Choir meets for weekly rehearsals at Millburn Academy, Inverness. You can find us on a map here.

History of NYCoS Inverness Choir
The NYCoS Inverness Choir began in 2008 with support from Highland Council. It is one of a growing network of NYCoS Area Choirs across Scotland.

How much does a membership cost?
The membership fee for the first full year is £120 - just £4 per rehearsal. If cost is an issue, don't be put off as, thanks to our supporters, financial assistance may be available.

How to join
NYCoS Inverness Choir recruits annually from Primary 3 in Inverness and surrounding areas.

Our free half-hour workshops are a fun and informal way to try out singing and games with others (where possible, with children from the same school). Our staff will then assess each singer's potential for membership to the choir.

 

You can sign up for a free workshop online.
