Dunblane Cathedral Choir is a busy, lively group consisting of a wide cross section of the congregation and also covering a wide age range. Its main function is to lead the praise at a Sunday morning service, singing an introit, an anthem and sometimes also an offertory. We often sing at weddings if requested, and occasionally give concerts of both sacred and secular music.
The choir goes on a major tour every three years or so. Previous tours have been to Germany, Ireland, and Wells and Chichester Cathedrals in England. We went to Oban on June 6th 2009 to sing at a RSCM Choirs' Festival, with a tour to Ripon Cathedral and York Minster in July 2010.

Over the past few years, the choir has performed at a number of special concerts in the Cathedral and elsewhere. including singing with professional orchestras such as the Scottish Bach Players.
We have been asked to take part in several BBC broadcasts over the past few years, including the Watchnight Service from Rosslyn Chapel.
There is a treble choir and an adult choir. The treble choir has both boys and girls aged 7 to 14. They rehearse in the Cathedral Halls each Monday at 4.45pm until 6.00pm, and each Thursday from 6.45pm until 8.15pm. The adult choir joins them on Thursdays and rehearses in the Cathedral Halls from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
Sunday School for the treble choir is held every Sunday morning and there is also a Bible Class for older members. The Treble choir meet briefly at 9.25am before going to the Sunday School, and then attend the main service at 10.30am.

The choir practices are not held during the summer school holidays (end of June - mid-August) and during this time the choir sing from their repertoire, depending on availability of choir members during the holiday season.
