Come and join us for our summer concert on Wednesday 26th June at 8pm at Portobello Baptist Church.
On Saturday 26th January 2019 over 50 people gathered at the Donkeyfield Community Orchard to wassail the trees with hearty songs, spiced apple juice and cake. Many thanks again to Jon Davey for the great photos.
We had a great time singing as part of Art Walk Porty in Porotbello on Saturday 1st September and oat the Ross Bandstand in Princes Street gardens on 8th September. We performed Ross Whyte’s piece The Great Exhibition – part of the Bandstands project – and are singing on the bandstands app.
We sang heartily at the annual Portobello Wassail at the Donkeyfield Community Orchard on January 27th. It was an oasis of calm amidst stormy weather all around! Many thanks to Jon Davey for the great photos.
We had a great time singing at the Portobello Christmas market in Brighton Park in December. Thanks to Jon Davey for the photos.
A few photos from our singing session on Portobello beach – another glorious evening. Thanks again to Jon Davey for the lovely photos
We had a great time singing at Newhailes as part of their December Holly Days. You can see the fun and energy in the faces! Thanks to Jon Davey again for the lovely photos.
We had a wonderful sunny evening for our sea songs session on the beach. A fire kept us cosy as the sun started to go down and 8 of us plunged into the sea, singing as we swam! Thanks to Jon Davey for the lovely photos.
There was standing room only at our summer concert at St. Mark’s Church! Here are some edited highlights Portobello Community Choir 18th May 2016
A group of about 18 singers braved torrential rain and gail force winds to sing on the steps of the Town Hall to an appreciative audience for the switching on of the lights and late night shopping in Portobello. We were then invited to the Lothian Dance Academy where we dried out over a very welcome glass of gluwien and a piece of stollen thanks to Morag Phillips. We watched some stunning dancing, and then sang some more – we have already been invited back for next year!
