The Vintage Chorus is Capital Theatres’ choir, founded in 2015 for older people “with time on their hands and a song in their heart”. Led by singer and cellist Wendy Weatherby and pianist Duncan Black, the group sings all sorts of music and everyone’s welcome. The focus is on singing together in a relaxed atmosphere, in the lovely surroundings of the Festival Theatre. You don’t need to be able to read music to join. The Vintage Chorus gives performances from time to time, in settings ranging from the Festival Theatre, to the New Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and Edinburgh’s largest restaurant and bar!
The Vintage Chorus meets for three terms of 10 weeks every year. Rehearsals take place on Tuesdays from 10.15am to 12.15pm.
Capital Theatres aim to be accessible to all. We are committed to making your visit to our theatres as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. All of our Front of House staff undergo disability awareness training and Dementia Friend Training and will be pleased to assist you should you require any information or help.
