Royal Conservatoire Voices was established in 2014 to provide performing opportunities of a high standard for talented young singers from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland to sing both as a group of soloists and in ensembles. It is a flexible pool of talent, which can vary in size according to repertoire, and explores music from all periods, from Baroque to contemporary.

 RCS Voices’ first public performances were in 2015, initially in programmes with a Baroque bias, at St Margaret’s Newlands and the Conservatoire itself. Further appearances include a concert of music for male voices and horns as part of the Cottier Chamber Music Project in the West End Festival in June, including a world premiere by David Kirchner. In summer 2015 the choir increased in size to make its Edinburgh International Festival debut as the chorus for Stravinsky’s The Rakes’s Progress with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Sir Andrew Davis.
