Welcome to Cunninghame Choir!
Come and join us!
Our rehearsals resume on Wednesday 30th August, when we'll start preparing for our November concert (Winter Across the Atlantic ). New members are always welcome, and we have a particular need for more Alto and Bass singers. Much help, support and practice materials will be made available in plenty time.
A new era for the Choir begins this autumn as we say a sad farewell to Tiffany Vong, our MD since 2016. However, we are delighted to promote Maciej Granat from accompanist to Musical Director, and introduce Isobel Burnie, our new but highly experienced Accompanist. We look forward to these new dynamics and the journey they will take us on!
See our Join Us page for more information about rehearsals.

About Cunninghame Choir
Welcome! Cunninghame Choir is a friendly and enthusiastic non-audition amateur adult choir based in Beith, North Ayrshire in the West of Scotland. Established in 1978, we are a mixed-voice (4 parts) choir with willingness and enthusiasm. We don't take ourselves too seriously, but do reap the rewards for our efforts. Our musical repertoire is wide and varied and is not limited to classic and sacred works. Recent themes have included Scottish Folk, European, Gospel, Blues as well as classical choral spanning the centuries to new works and commissions. We look forward to learning new and interesting music, developing as a choir and widening our repertoire under the direction of our new Musical Director, Maciej Granat, with assistance from talented accompanist, Isobel Burnie.
We meet at Beith Community Centre on Wednesday evenings between September and May and we perform two concerts each year. New members are warmly welcomed and encouraged - have a look at our Join us page for more information.
40 Years of Cunninghame Choir!
Our Spring 2019 concert, The First Toll, celebrated 40 years of singing and performing together, and took its title from a new and dramatic commission from our very talented composer/accompanist, Maciej Granat. This work set music to a poem by local character, Andrew Aitken, musing on hearing Beith’s Parish Church bell toll for the first time in 1810. A recording of this performance can be viewed on our Concerts and Repertoire page. This concert also featured a previous Cunninghame Choir World Premiere from renowned Scottish composer, Sir James MacMillan, alongside the elegant Mass in G by Franz Schubert.
