Music at Reading - Choirs

choir singing in great hall

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.

· Festival Voices is a symphonic chorus who meet to rehearse and perform at our termly music festivals. Festival Voices will meet in February and March for a concert performance of a popular musical – watch this space for the show announcement!
