Loud & Proud on the Fringe 2018


The new year promises to be an eventful one with lots of surprises in store. Choir members will also be taking part in Various Voices the quadrennial international LGBT singing festival which this year is being hosted in Munich.

The Rainbow Assembly

Loud & Proud and Edinburgh Gay Men’s Chorus came together in song, to celebrate our LGBT+ voices in concert on a musical journey to Germany on Saturday 28 April. The packed house in The Assembly Hall, Mound Place and supportive audience helped raise funds for our forthcoming trip to Munich, Edinburgh’s sister city, to take part in Various Voices, the Europe-wide LGBT+ choir festival.

Loud & Proud on the Fringe

Loud and Proud held its annual Fringe concert at St Cuthbert’s Parish Church, Lothian Road, on Saturday 19th August in support of Waverley Care, Scotland’s HIV and Hepatitis C charity. The performance combined Scottish songs, songs from abroad, pop classics and songs of resistance and solidarity. And we’re delighted to say that we were given a standing ovation.

Spring Concert

Now in our 12th year, Loud & Proud held its first concert at Stockbridge Parish Church on Saturday 27th May. Our repertoire has been updated to include several songs from films including Somewhere and Misty Mountains Cold. The unexpected hit of the evening was I Just Can’t Get Enough. The audience appreciated both the sentiments of the song in particular and the evening as whole. We’ll be back in August during the Fringe.

Spring Concert

Loud & Proud were delighted to hold their Spring concert once again at Stockbridge Parish Church on Saturday 7th May. The repertoire included some old favourites and some new surprises. We were particularly pleased to welcome The Craigie Choir from Perth as our special guests.

Songlines was an Edinburgh International Festival event on Sunday 21st August. The event took place at nine venues spread across Edinburgh, as far west as Dalmeny, and for Loud and Proud, out east in St Mary’s Church, Haddington. It was designed as a “celebration of singing, inspired by the indigenous Australian ancestral tradition of passing on ancient sacred stories as large song cycles that preserve the living link between land and people”.

Loud & Proud were delighted to have been asked to take part, and we joined forces with Dunbar Sings and North Berwick Sings as one mighty choir of 70 singers; there were two performances, along with soloist, Amy Strachan and the Consort of Voices.
