What happens at NYCoS Stirling Choir?
In the first year Training Choir meets for an hour every week during term time, this goes up to 2.5 - 3 hours for older children. Rehearsal time is split between musical games and singing together. Members are encouraged to sing to the best of their ability and will learn to read music and to develop and train the voice.
The choir perform at various events throughout the year including two concerts for family and friends where choir members showcase all they have learned. These concerts will take place at the end of the summer and winter terms.
NYCoS Stirling Choir meets for weekly rehearsals at Dunblane High School, Dunblane. You can find us on a map here.
History of NYCoS Stirling Choir
The NYCoS Stirling Choir began in 2000 with support from Stirling Council. It is one of a growing network of NYCoS Area Choirs across Scotland.
The membership fee for the first year in the Training Choir is £100, (payable in instalments). A discount is offered to siblings who attend at the same time and NYCoS has a small bursary fund available, so don’t be put off if cost is an issue, we may be able to help.
