Our 15th Anniversary Concert
Join us to celebrate Loud & Proud’s 15th anniversary in a special online event! As the pandemic appeared to be stretching beyond the Spring Concert horizon, Loud & Proud’s irrepressible musical director Kathleen Cronie floated the idea during our online rehearsals, of putting together a compilation video from past performances and spoken-word pieces from current choir members. Some members also contributed to a virtual performance from our own homes. You can find Loud & Proud’s YouTube channel to watch the concert any time or just click/ tap above. If you enjoy the concert, please consider donating to our supporting charity Waverley Care at their donate page.
Regrettably, we have decided to cancel this year’s Spring Concert. We are working hard using all sorts of technology to continue rehearsing remotely and we will the continue review the situation as the Cov-19 pandemic progresses. Please keep an eye here for details
Come and sing with us
We are Scotland’s first LGBT choir and have been singing together since 2005. We are an eclectic collection of people who have a wide variety of singing and musical talents. We rehearse every Monday evening online. We are always looking for new members.
There is no audition, you don’t need to be able to read music and your sexuality or gender is not an issue.
If you’re interested, have a look at the Join Us page and send us an email. You’ll be made very welcome, and although we wouldn’t be able to meet face-to-face you would be able to take part in our virtual rehearsals on Mondays.
Throughout 2019 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots which lead to the modern Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender liberation movement. Our Spring and Fringe concerts reflected the joy, the struggles and losses we have all come through since that eventual year. Here is a video of choir members singing Stonewall composed and written by Ali Burns.
