Cairn Chorus is a community performance choir based in Moniaive. Founded in 2007 the intention was to encourage the joy of singing as an inclusive community activity.


Kate Howard

The choir is now 10 years old and our current musical director, Kate Howard, leads us through fantastic international repertoires and constantly presents us with ambitious new challenges. Choir members hail from all corners of Dumfries and Galloway and learn the songs by ear and /or sheet music. We strive to perform without the use of files as we believe that by learning the material we can engage more effectively with the audience and thus give a more lively performance.

We’re starting back again for our Christmas term on Thursday 12th October . This and our all day rehearsal on Sunday 15th are taster sessions. Come along and try them out. We’ll be singing in Ukrainian, Serbian, Bulgarian as well as West Gallery and Shape Note carols.

***** We are actively seeking tenors especially chaps but all welcome *****
