Welcome to Stirling University Choir

Exciting performances of varied music
from a lively choir with students, staff and the local community!

4th APRIL CONCERT POSTPONED

We have taken the decision to postpone the Stirling University Choir concert on 4th April and cancel all of the remaining rehearsals for this semester.

Our first priority in this decision has been to ensure the well-being of our choir members and all those involved in the concert in light of the increasing risks presented by the coronavirus.

We realise this will be a disappointment, but we hope you understand.

Our initial thinking is that we will reschedule the concert to be held in the next Stirling University semester, most likely on 5 December 2020.

The Committee have met to discuss this further and we will keep you informed of our decisions by email and updates on this website.

If you have any questions on this decision, or any points you would like the Committee to address, please get in touch with the Committee either directly or via your section rep.

We would also be most grateful if you would return the music scores that you have borrowed please.
Please see the email sent to all choir members on Saturday, 14 March or contact your section rep. and we can make other arrangements.

In the meantime, we wish you the best of health and look forward to us all singing together again next semester.
