For three weeks every August Edinburgh Fringe Festival welcomes performers from all over the world to present their shows alongside the Edinburgh International Festival.

Following their successful first visit, Rock Festival Choir were invited back to the same iconic city centre venues for a second year – this time to present an exciting programme of contemporary choral classics.

Last year, Alnwick’s choir directed by Peter Brown, performed the Rachmaninov Vespers as part of the Edinburgh Fringe at two city centre venues, Greyfriars Kirk and Canongate Kirk.
