    It's not all work!
    The first rehearsal after our successful concert was  a very relaxed and fun affair.

    A little bit of singing and lots of mingling and getting to know each other better. Yes, Altos can speak to Sopranos! And Tenors and Basses ....

    We also enjoyed plenty of delicious home made food!

    WOW! What a concert!

    On Saturday we sang our charity concert at Craigsbank Church - and what an amazing evening it was! We are still on a high!

    The audience was bobbing along to the 80s-Medley and they were listening in silent awe at Shelagh and her cello playing.

    Several new singers had their 'debut' with EPC in this concert. Well done to them for catching up on our repertoire and we are so happy to have them with us.

    It was a beautiful and joyful evening for the audience as well as us.

    Ready for our Charity Concert

    Sunday's rehearsal saw us working with a very entertaining stand-in conductor - Ian. Although our Musical Director Stuart Mitchell was on holiday we were working hard on our songs for the Charity Concert on 20th April - -  enjoying a great evening!

    Getting our new songs off score
    Wow! What a fantastic rehearsal last night! We were absolutely buzzing afterwards..

    Our new songs are coming along brilliantly and we are working hard to sing off score now. 

    We learn our songs from sheet music and from the sing-overs our fabulous section leads produce for us. But in our concerts we always sing without sheet music. We love how we can engage with our audience so much more when we don't look at music scores.

    Reminiscing about a wonderful concert at St Michael's Linlithgow
    We had such a great day at St Michael’s for this, back in December! (Just taken a final piece of tinsel out of the music for that day…)

    Massive well done to all of those involved in making this happen for a deserving cause & thanks to our choristers who played their part too!

    We would like to thank everyone who supported our Festival of Christmas Trees 2023. We are delighted to let you know that the weekend raised the amazing total of £9,559.23.
    The money raised has now been sent onto our chosen charity for 2023, Quiet Waters. What an amazing amount and this is all down to each and everyone of the groups that participated, so thank you very much.

    Make You Feel My Love
    With Valentine's Day approaching we dug out one of the old favourite songs 'Make you feel my Love'. And we felt it of course  - we were all enjoying the song during rehearsal and we will perform it this Sunday at our Mini-Concert.

    New Singers are learning the songs
    A number of our visitors from the open reheasal night in January have now joined the choir and are enjoying the singing. They are learning new songs together with everybody else and are also catching up on some of our repertoire songs. It is lovely to have their voices amongst us!

    We are now looking forward to singing for some older folks (pssst! can't say more, because it is a surprise!). And we are planing our concert in lovely Craigsbank Church - our reheasal venue - but more on that later.

Open rehearsal night is on Sunday 21st January. Come and join us for a rehearsal, get to know us and how me sound and work on our songs. We are a friendly bunch - and you don't need a police connection to join.

    See you soon ?
  • Merry Christmas Everyone -Christmas 2020 Virtual Fundraising Performance
  •  Date Posted: Tue, 8 Dec 2020

    Christmas is usually a very busy time of year for EPC, with numerous festive performances in our diary. One of our regular Yuletide appearances is on the steps of The Dome on George Street, Edinburgh, where we gather to sing some carols and other Christmas tunes and shake some buckets to raise money for Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity (ECHC).

    The COVID 19 pandemic means we are unable to do this in 2020, but ECHC approached us and asked if we would consider putting together a virus friendly virtual performance instead and we couldn't say no.

    So the tinsel, fairy lights, antlers, santa hats and Christmas jumpers came out of storage and we once more grappled with recording technology and the strange feeling of singing alone to produce a virtual version of Merry Christmas Everyone. This song, made famous by Shakin Stevens, was the Christmas number one of 1985, entered our festive repertoire last year and is fast becoming one of our favourites. The arrangement is by our Musical Director, Michael Longden and his expert sleigh bell jungling can also be heard on the track.

    Seasons greetings to all and here's hoping that by Christmas 2021 we are back on the steps of The Dome. In the meantime, if you can, please throw a few coins in this year's virtual bucket at

    Merry Christmas Everyone.
