About The Edinburgh Police Choir

If you think ‘choir’ means standing still and singing old fashioned music while holding scores, think again. The Edinburgh Police Choir is a bit different.  We consistently delight and surprise our audiences with our lively interpretation of songs you might, or might not know.
We rehearse in west Edinburgh on Sunday evenings under the direction of our MD, Michael Longden.

Some of our members work for the Police Service but there’s no need to have a police connection to join us.
