HHCOS produces a choral concert and several carol concerts annually, as well as an opera when finances allow and the society is run entirely by volunteers.The Society uses professional soloists and orchestras , giving local people in the chorus the opportunity to work alongside professionals at the top of their game.
New members are welcome to come and sing and can join at any time. All abilities are catered for, there are at present 70 – 90 members ranging from 16 to over 80 years of age. As with all the groups at Haddo, there are no auditions to join.
The next good time to join us is in April 2017 but you can come along any time to see how we operate with no obligation. Come and give it a try!
New members are very welcome and needed – so please feel free to come along at any time and give us a free trial and bring a friend!

Haddo Voices has just appointed a new chorus master, Kirsty Robertson, who will be rehearsing both choirs from August. Kirsty has a wealth of experience with young choirs and the development of young voices.
Haddo Children’s Voices
Rehearsing on Wednesday evenings in Ellon Parish Church.
This choir is for children aged P1 – P5. Music ranges from silly warm ups to jazzy to traditional to easy classical. A fun introduction to singing and with plenty of tips on developing young ears and voices and always with plenty of laughs along the way.
Haddo Girls’ and Boys Voices
A choir for all aged P6 – S6. Rehearsing on Wednesday evenings. Music is specially tailored to suit teenagers ranging from folk to jazz to musical numbers as well as more traditional classical. Rehearsals are informal and fun but with serious content for any aspiring singers. Voices are gently coached through the teen years.
Voices Carol Ensemble
This is a small group of singers picked to perform at some extra carol concerts in December (rehearsals run from the October break only). Singers are picked for their ability and commitment to the choir (they must be full time members) and availability for all the concerts. You will be invited by letter and you should only accept the position if you can make all the rehearsals and concerts.
Could all parents please consider helping run the choirs? We need more people to help with uniforms and admin.
Worried about the weather?
Please ring the apologies number above after 5.00pm on rehearsal day, for recorded message about possible cancellation. If you choose not to come to a rehearsal due to the weather, please text or email an apology in before 4.30pm, so that we can call off if very few are going to show up!
