Banchory Singers

A mixed voice community choir of all ages and abilities

Banchory Singers Wednesday evening rehearsal

In 1984, soon after its founding, Banchory Singers performed their first Spring Concert. That means the town and its surrounds have been ringing to our singing continuously for forty years. We even sang through the COVID lockdown when we held several concerts on Zoom. We will be singing for a good few years yet.

We are marking our historic 40th anniversary with another Spring Concert on Saturday 11 May 2024 at 4pm in Banchory Town Hall. Some of the youngsters who were founding members are still in the choir and thanks to several new recruits this year we currently have 60 members.

This Spring Concert will be historic for another reason as it will be the last one conducted by our Musical Director of 30 years Tara Leiper. Tara has led the choir through many singing adventures and helped us get to grips with hundreds of songs. As regular concert audience members will know Tara has the skills to bring out our best.

Tara has pulled together a programme for this concert which combines a return to highlights from the past 40 years together with a selection of new songs. The theme is the joy of singing.

We will be joined by some of our local young musicians.

There will be only one performance and we expect a high demand, so make sure you get your tickets early


Sing With Us

2024 is our 40th year as a community choir.  We hope to carry on entertaining the people of Banchory and district for many years to come. There will be a special commemorative event for our members and our usual series of concerts and sing-outs will continue. Each year brings its own challenges but the fun of weekly rehearsals is a constant as we hope is the pleasure we bring to our local communities.

If you would like to join us, this special year, please come along to the West Church, Banchory High St, any Wednesday evening at 7pm.
