Join a University choir in 2018

University choirs

Let 2018 be the Year of the Choir! 

Music at Reading invites staff, students, alumni and community members to join a choir at the University of Reading. 

With four different choirs to choose from, singers of all abilities are welcome to join. The philosophy of Music at Reading is that everyone can sing, and through focused rehearsals and dedicated musicianship training, the choirs will help you find your voice, read music, and perform!  

Our Choirs

  • Campus Voices is a lunchtime community choir for those who enjoy sociable singing. 
  • Academic Voices is a non-auditioned choir for those who have some experience of singing choral music and want to develop their singing skills further in fun and engaging rehearsals. 
  • Chamber Choir is an auditioned ensemble for singers who enjoy singing more challenging repertoire. Members of Chamber Choir pay a fee to attend this choir.
  • Festival Voices is a symphonic chorus who meet to rehearse and perform at our termly music festivals. The ensemble will perform The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins at the Ben Pedley Memorial Concert as part of the Remembrance Festival in March 2018.
