Entry to the Junior Chorus is by admission from the Probationary Choir when places become available. In exceptional circumstances young singers aged 10-12 may be admitted at this stage providing they have the ability to read music and have a lot of singing experience. The Choir regularly sings, in up to three parts, a wide variety of styles of music both a cappella and accompanied. Performances and recordings are undertaken when required with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, The Edinburgh Festival, BBC and Music Clubs and Festivals.
