Lauderdale Community Choir

A mixed voice choir based in Lauder, Scottish Borders

We are a thriving mixed voice choir, based in Lauder in the Scottish Borders, attracting members from across Lauderdale and beyond. We sing a variety of music including pop, classical and folk, performing at our annual Autumn Concert and local community events, especially at Christmas. We have also performed at the Glasgow Music Festival, winning the Mixed Choirs class in 2017.

We are an enthusiastic and fun-loving group; we love to sing together and learn new music, and we are also a supportive community where many lasting friendships have been made. For many of us, Thursday evening rehearsal is a highlight in our week!

Everyone is welcome; you don’t need to be able to read music and there are no auditions – you just need to love singing! It is always a good time to join so come and give singing a go. You can find all the details on our About page.

Next performance?

2020 is our tenth anniversary year, and our main performance this year was to be ‘A Decade of Song’, featuring songs that we have loved performing and our audiences have loved hearing. Like all amateur music groups we are really missing our weekly rehearsals and the chance to connect through singing. Once we are able to safely resume rehearsals we will pick up where we left off – watch out for ‘A Decade of Song’ in 2021! We look forward to seeing you there.
