A big thank-you to Kathleen and Aly for hosting our August summer picnic. We had the weather, the Pimms, the home-baked scones and cake on a plate. Lovely. Apologies to Alan and Eileen for failing to snap them but they were there! We were joined by Faith Ockwell, our new MD.

Looking forward to singing together on Wed 31 August. Want to sing with us? Contact us here or on:

Please can you help with our search?

Inverurie Choral Society is looking for a new Director of Music.

We seek a graduate/post-graduate musician with a qualification/interest in Vocal Tuition, who would like to progress their musical career development, by directing a local Choir such as ours. Keyboard skills for our weekly practices and the occasional informal performances would be an advantage. We do “buy in” an accompanist for formal concerts, but do not at present have a weekly accompanist. A fee is payable per rehearsal.

Applications are invited from musicians with appropriate qualifications. A recently qualified person who is looking to develop experience as MD is certainly welcome to apply. A letter of application with CV attached can be submitted immediately, or by 2 July 2022 at the latest:

by email to

or by post to

Inverurie Choral Society, c/o 7, Cuninghill Road, Inverurie, AB51 3TS.

A practical interview will be arranged early August. We’re proud to say that we sang throughout Lockdown, with performances replaced by Zoom sing-throughs and a couple of Zoom recordings. Now, we are back to meeting on Wednesday nights at 7.30pm during school terms, in the West Church Hall, Inverurie. The new term will start on Wednesday 31 August 2022.

ICS is a small SATB Choir, usually with approximately 30 members. Founded by John Hearne, our first Director of Music in 1998, Moira Hunter took over in 2005, with a year’s input from Paul Tierney during Moira’s absence, and Gordon Jack has been with us since January 2019. We like to sing an eclectic selection from the classical and contemporary choral repertoire, everything from Madrigals to Vaudeville, Mozart to Jenkins, and more. We put on a Christmas and Summer Concert each year and we enjoy performing occasionally for Care and Retirement homes, and in Charity fundraising events.

If you know of anyone who might be interested in joining us as our new Director of Music, would you please pass on this information to them? I’d be very happy to discuss the post informally with folk interested in applying.

With many thanks to you for your help!

This is the Quaich we presented to Gordon Jack on his last night with Inverurie Choral, Wednesday 18 May 2022. Maeve thanked Gordon for his support for the Choir since January 2019. She said that we had enjoyed, and benefitted from, his time with us, and thanked him sincerely for his effort and commitment over the three and a half years. We especially appreciated his keeping the Choir going via Zoom through Lockdown, little dreaming that it would be eighteen months before we would get back to live singing. Gordon leaves with all our best wishes for his future in music.
