Portobello Community Choir

Four singers as part of a choir wearing red and green Xmas outfits


Baptist Church Hall, Portobello, Edinburgh


We are an open community choir – everyone is welcome and all songs are taught by ear. We sing a wide variety of songs that help us joyfully connect with ourselves, each other and both the natural and social world around us. We organise a wassail each January at the Donkeyfield Community Orchard where we sing to the trees. We sing songs that bring us joy, celebrate life events, the natural world and the turning of the seasons. We have also sung at funerals and celebrations of choir members. We are aware of the deep inequalities in the world and of the climate challenges we face – we connect with these issues through song and aim to make a difference.

The choir often takes part in a few events or performances each year, chosen with choir members’ agreement. There is no pressure on individuals to take part in any event. Any money made from events is donated to a charity/charities chosen by choir members and used to subsidise places at choir for those on a low income.

Session times

Wednesday evenings in term time 7.30 - 9.30pm
