About the choir
Edna Auld formed the Jambouree Choir in 2005 with 18 boys and girls of primary age. Their first engagement was to sing “Highland Cathedral” at the opening of Perth Concert Hall in the presence of HM the Queen. In 2021 the Cabaret Singers made their Fringe debut – with an online, on demand, concert throughout the world’s largest arts festival.
Rehearsals take place in St Leonard-in-the-Fields Church Hall, Marshall Place, Perth, during the school session. The Jambouree Choir (primary aged) meets from 5pm-6pm; the Cabaret Singers 6.15pm-7.30pm.
The Jambouree Choir aims to develop self confidence young singers and to provide opportunities for them to perform in concerts alongside experienced singers.
The Jambouree Choir and Cabaret Singers are well established in the Fair City and are available for Civic and other major functions in Perth and Kinross as well as at venues across Scotland.
