About EUMS Chorus

The Edinburgh University Music Society Chorus is one of the largest choirs in Scotland, performing several times a year for large audiences.

The Edinburgh University Music Society Chorus is one of the largest choirs in Scotland, performing several times a year in front of large audiences. EUMS Chorus is a non-auditioning SATB symphonic chorus and we welcome both students and non-students as members. Rehearsals take place every Tuesday from 1830-2045 in Room G1, Paterson’s Land, Holyrood Road during the University of Edinburgh’s term-time. “The intelligence of the chorus of University students, and their evident determination to do their best before an Edinburgh audience, made their conductor feel proud of them.” ~ Sir Herbert Oakeley, EUMS founder As with the other ensembles of EUMS, Chorus puts on a concert at the end of each semester in various venues including St. Cuthbert’s Church, Greyfriars Kirk and St. Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral. Though the Chorus is non-auditioning, the quality of our performances is very high, and with the numbers behind us we produce a fantastic sound. Our Chorus performs challenging pieces of music from a wide classical repertoire, with recent works including Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, Jenkins’ The Armed Man and Verdi’s Messa da Requiem. Chorus also collaborates with one of our orchestras once a year to perform large choral works, which have recently included sell-out performances of Mozart's Requiem, Mendelssohn’s Symphony No.2 “Hymn of Praise" and Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius. Though there is no requirement to read music, it can certainly help, but whether you are a mini-maestro or indeed a hairbrush-singer, then there is certainly a place for you.
