EASTSIDE CHOIR

EASTSIDE CHOIR

Formed in 2016, The EastSide Choir was set up to offer people living and working in east Belfast the opportunity to explore singing, get creative and socialise at the same time.

In the time that is has been running the choir has grown to a group of 35 dedicated members with regular interest from local people who want to join.

EastSide Choir is open to members of all ages, backgrounds and abilities and no previous singing experience is necessary. We don’t hold auditions and you don’t need to be able to read music – all you’ll need is an eagerness to learn and a commitment to attending weekly rehearsals.

Led by Choir Directors Ryan Greer and Helenna Howie, the choir has a varied repertoire of music and work towards 3 performances per year, including charitable functions, the annual Winter Warmer and collaborative concerts during the EastSide Arts Festival each August.
