Welcome to Langlee Community Choir
Author Jarod Kintz said, "I only sing in the shower. I would join a choir, but I don't think my bathtub would hold that many people." Judith Cleghorn of the Langlee Residents Association was inspired by Gareth Malone's TV programme about a boys' choir, and founded our choir in March 2012. We began with a mere handful of singers in a meeting room at Langlee Community Centre, but within a few months we grew to around 50 members, and we keep on growing, such that we no longer fit the meeting room, never mind a bathtub! Members come from Galashiels and the surrounding towns, the furthest being from Jedburgh (to date). The age group stretches right up from primary school age to the heavenly voices of those with wisdom on their side!
With the encouragement of our Musical Director Chris Achenbach, we have grown in expertise too. Not to blow our own trumpet or anything, but compliments have been expressed on the clarity of our diction, how we are able to stay in tune, and the overall quality of our sound! Chris has, of course, been instrumental in this with his gentle and often humourous approach to getting the best out of us. (Wow! Two musical puns in one paragraph!)

No auditions.

Ability to read music
is not essential.

Just enjoy yourself!

Some of us have many years' singing experience but others had only ever sung around the house or never sung at all before joining the choir. Singing in public can be a bit daunting the first few times, but the fun we have soon puts the shyness at bay, and our collective enthusiasm for singing apparently shines through in our concerts.
I joined Langlee Community Choir because... "It's good to meet with new people and old friends."

Speaking of concerts, if you would like to partake of the Langlee Community Choir experience, have a look at our performances page to see what we're up to next.
