A vibrant youth choir based in the south west Edinburgh for ages 8-14.

Our aim is to develop and share the pleasure, fun and joy of singing

Formed in 1987, The Pentland Juniors exists to enable children to experience and develop their love of singing choral music in a vocally healthy and fun environment. As a trained soprano and singing teacher, Jessica ensures that the young singers of the Pentland Juniors cultivate a healthy singing technique. They explore a range of styles throughout the year – from the more traditional choral repertoire, to folk, world songs, and songs from shows and films – in order to develop their ability to sing in unison, and 2 or 3 parts. During weekly rehearsals, the Pentland Juniors also work to develop their musicianship and sight-singing skills through Kodaly-based singing games and the learning of solfège notation.

Jessica, our musical director, firmly believes that learning and enjoyment go hand-in-hand, especially where singing is concerned. So, whilst some hard work is involved, singing in the Pentland Juniors is also extremely fun and rewarding!

​The Junior Singers meet at Balerno Parish Church every Tuesday evening between 6:00pm and 7:00pm

​There are three sessions a year, the first is from September to December, the second is from January to Easter, with a break for mid-term. The third term is from Easter to June, in line with school holidays.

​The Pentland Junior Singers perform in the Christmas and Summer concerts of the Pentland Singers. They also take part in the Edinburgh Competition Festival and have won the Scots Song section twice ( 2017 and 2019) and the Choir of Mixed Ages (2019).

New Members Welcome

The power of the collective chorus is greater than the sum of its parts, which is why Pentlands Junior Singers is always looking out for new, fresh talent. If you think you have a place with the choir, why not get in touch?
