Music in Polmont Old


Choir
Polmont Old Parish Church has a strong choral tradition dating back more than a century. Today's Choir continue to play an important role by leading worship Sunday by Sunday. Successive organists have had to adapt the Choir’s repertoire to reflect the changing styles of worship over the years, often initiated by the publication of new hymn books.

The present Choir is a voluntary group of 15 mixed voices covering a range of ages and musical backgrounds. The Choir has a number of long-serving members, together with newer singers.

In preparation for Sunday services and other events, rehearsals take place in the church on Sunday mornings from 9:45am - 10:30am.

Choir members enjoy an active social life both within and out with Polmont Old. This includes events such as our annual summer outing to the Pitlochry Festival Theatre, and our Christmas dinner.
