Current position (Spring 2022)

There is always a great deal of interest in joining Pitchcraft.  


At the moment we are particularly keen to audition basses and tenors.  If you're musically capable and can dedicate time to practising between rehearsals, we'd be pleased to hear from you.  Please give details of your experience on the form here and we'll be in touch.*


For all other voices: We aren't looking for more singers in these sections right now.  We keep this page updated regularly so do check back in the future. 


*We tend to welcome new members monthly.  Mailboxes are manned by volunteers so we may not be able to get back to you straight away, but we'll do so as soon as possible.  

Success! Message received.

Pitchcraft choir


Everyone joining Pitchcraft has to take an audition. This makes sure that everyone can sing well and is going to contribute properly. You'll be asked to sing back notes played or sung to you to check your pitch and range, and to sing a song of your own choice to demonstrate that you can sing with a good, clear tone, on pitch and without any uncontrolled warble or scooping. You can audition before or after your free taster session - it's up to you.

At the audition you will also be asked if you are willing to practise between rehearsals. We've learned that this is an important aspect of Pitchcraft membership. 


Pitchcraft rehearses on Tuesday evenings between 7.00 until 9.00pm in a fantastic venue in the centre of Edinburgh. Rehearsals are fun and lively, but also challenging and focused. To ensure that the team is greater than the sum of its parts, members must practise between rehearsals, either on their own or in self-organised groups, to ensure that the progress of the choir from week to week is 'three steps forward and onwards' rather than 'three steps forward and two steps back'. The Members' Area of this site has scores, music files and videos designed to help everyone learn and gain confidence.
