Join us!

New Members Welcome!

Do you enjoy singing? Can you count to eight? Why not give us a go? Whether or not you can read music, new members are always made very welcome and encouraged. No previous choir singing experience is necessary and there's safety and support in our numbers! With the wonders of modern technology, practice mp3 (or put onto CD) with emphasised parts are made available to help members learn by ear and become familiar with their individual part, be it soprano, alto, tenor or bass (SATB). Sectional rehearsals are also organised regularly but on an informal basis, usually at a member's house.

We are an adult choir, but some youngsters may join us if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Individuals will vary, but a certain degree of confidence and maturity will be required. Therefore we suggest, perhaps, age 14 to be an acceptable lower limit. Take heart! Age is no barrier! :-)

Further information about our music, approach to learning, and how a typical rehearsal unfolds can be found in our information flyer.

Where and When?

The choir meets during term time every Wednesday evening from 7.30pm-9.30pm at Beith Community Centre, Kings Road, Beith, North Ayrshire, Scotland.


Term dates for the 2023-2024 session are:

30th August - 15th November (concert 19th November)

10th January -  15th May (concert 19th May)


Do come along and try us out!

Please send us a message via our Contact Us page or via our Facebook page for details on how to join in.

We do recommend that new members try to join us within the first 6 Open Rehearsals of our term so as to reduce the amount of catching up - although this will also depend on your own experience and confidence reading music. At this point new works are still being introduced and sectional rehearsals will also be well underway to assist. 

Choir Fees

Please join our Open Rehearsals for free and see if Cunninghame Choir is for you.

If, after a few sessions, you decide you would like to join us, there is a weekly fee of £5, which covers two salaries (MD & accompanist) score, venue, instrument and musician hire for our practice sessions and performances.

Each season comprises 12 rehearsals for the November concert and 19 rehearsals for the May concert.

Payment can be made weekly, monthly, per term or for the whole year, whichever is most suitable for you. Please speak to Kate Bailey, Treasurer, to determine your preferred payment plan.

If you are a student or unemployed, the choir funds may be able to subsidise your participation. This is treated with the strictest confidence.

Performance Attire

Our concert attire is a black blouse with black trousers/skirt and shoes/boots for ladies and black shirt, trousers and shoes for gentlemen.  You may add some additional colour and sparkle if you wish.
