What is a Male Voice Choir?
A group of male singers who sing music in four parts – 2 Tenor parts, Baritone and Bass
About 50 men who love singing to produce a sound that has its own special quality. They meet in central Kilmarnock on Tuesday nights from September till March.
Is this type of choir not for old men?
No, in fact throughout the UK there are many teenage male voice choirs. In this choir the youngest member of the choir can be 17 and the oldest is in their mid - 80s.

I don’t if I am tenor, baritone or bass and have never sung in a choir before
It doesn’t matter!! If you have a good singing voice you should still apply.
What are the advantages of the Scholarship?
As well as paying you to do something you enjoy, you will receive advice on vocal techniques for singing different types of song and gain valuable experience in sight reading music.
I have lots of other studies to consider – what would be the time commitment?
The Choir would expect you to attend most rehearsals on a Tuesday evening from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. These normally run from mid-September till the end of March. You would also be expected to sing at most of our concerts, (currently 4 or 5 per season but often also on a Tuesday) and at our Christmas Concert, and the Annual Concert in the Kilmarnock Grand Hall.
