National Youth Choir of Scotland East Lothian


Each year, East Lothian council’s Arts Service, in partnership with the National Youth Choir of Scotland (NYCoS) invites all P3-P7 children (who attend an East  Lothian Council Primary School) to join one of their Singing Groups.

The groups are completely free and are funded by Creative Scotland through the Youth Music Initiative, East Lothian.

 Typically, the groups runs in the Spring term (January to March)

There are six groups to choose from (six venues) and two age groups per venue -  P3&4 and P5-7

 All groups join together for a concert in the Brunton Theatre in March.

Your child can attend the group of your choice regardless of which primary school they attend. The options are Haddington, Tranent, Prestonpans, Dunbar, North Berwick and Musselburgh.

The NYCoS project is now complete for 2018. If you would like more information or to add your name to the mailing list for next year, you can contact Charlotte McMillan by telephone 0131 6535252 or email
