Join One of Our Choirs
HHCOS is run entirely by volunteers. New members are always welcome and there are no auditions to join.
Each year we produce a choral concert or opera (where funds allow) in March, a choral concert in October as part of the Haddo Arts Festival and several carol services and concerts in December in Haddo House Chapel. One of the great pleasures of singing with HHCOS is the opportunity to perform alongside a professional orchestra and professional soloists.
Rehearsals take place every Thursday evening at Haddo Peatyards from 7.30 – 9.30pm.
Membership Fees: Full membership – from £80 / Concession – £65 / Student – £30
HHCOS VOICES CHOIR
Voices choir perform several concerts annually at the end of each term, to showcase their work. Concerts are held in Haddo House Hall. This is a wonderful opportunity to perform on a stage, encouraging confidence-building. Members are offered the opportunity to perform solos and duets at these concerts, although there is no pressure for those who do not wish to. Members are expected to attend every week, especially in the run up to a concert.
Voices is a non-auditioned choir – we believe that everyone can sing, given the right nurturing environment. The only stipulation is you should be able to attend all rehearsals, where possible. New members are very welcome and needed – so please feel free to come along at any time for a free trial and bring a friend!
Rehearsals take place on Wednesday evenings in St Mary on the Rock Church, Ellon from 6.15 to 7pm for those in P2 – P5. Music ranges from silly warm ups to jazzy to traditional to easy classical. A fun introduction to singing with plenty of tips on developing young ears and voices and always with plenty of laughs along the way.
For the older age group (P6 – S6) rehearsals also take place on Wednesday evenings in St Mary on the Rock Church, Ellon but from 7.15 – 8.15 pm. Music is specially tailored to suit teenagers ranging from folk to jazz to musical numbers as well as more traditional, easy classical pieces.
Voices membership is £20 per term (3 terms) or £50 per year. Siblings receive a discount of £15 per term or £40 per year. Members are also required to purchase Voices hoodies for concert performances which will be charged at cost – currently £16.50 with a free T-shirt on joining (replacement t-shirts will also be charged at cost).
