sing with us

Cairn Chorus is a community and performance choir based in Moniaive , but also drawing members from beyond the Cairn Valley. The choir meet to rehearse at Moniaive Institute on Thursday evenings from 7.30-9.30pm over two terms: September-January and end of January –May/June.


New starters are welcome during October following the school break and particularly at the workshop to be held on the 15th October to start the new winter repertoire.

We don’t hold auditions and you don’t have to read music. But we do ask for enthusiasm and commitment, and a willingness to take part in our concerts. Our aim is to perform without music, so lots of learning, but resulting in the members engaging with the audience instead of their scores; a more enjoyable performance for everyone concerned.

What we sing

Our repertoire is hugely varied, including traditional and modern music from Scotland, England, Europe and America. This year we’ve ranged as far afield as the Ukraine, South America the USA and Yorkshire…

Our songs bring together voices in harmony, sometimes with instruments, often unaccompanied.
