Community Choir

The Music Hall Community Choir welcomes anyone aged 16+, no previous experience required. 

This session of the Community Choir is now sold out, places are allocated on a first come, first served bases.

Rehearsals are fun and relaxed, with plenty of time to meet new people and learn about different types of music. The choir sings a mixed repertoire inspired by the Aberdeen Performing Arts’ programme, from pop to classical with everything in between! Formed in September 2017, the choir have already performed in public on a number of occasions including two concerts in the Lemon Tree, festive carol singing in Aberdeen’s Bon Accord centre and most recently as part of the Music Hall re-opening Stepping In Celebrations where they took to the stage with Travis frontman, Fran Healy’’


Spinning Songs

From October-December 2018, Aberdeen Performing Arts Creative Learning team worked with Scottish Opera to bring their ‘Spinning Songs’ project to Aberdeen. Working with local school and nursery, Gilcomstoun, along with residents from Fergus House and Rosewell House care homes and participants from Aberdeen City Council Creative Learning, musicians and practitioners Andy McTaggart and Jessica Leary worked to develop an intergenerational project, which celebrates the Music Hall and how music can be a bond across all age groups. The final performance was a celebratory performance at the ‘Stepping In’ weekend to mark the reopening of the Music Hall.
