We’re delighted to announce that The University of Manchester Chorus will be rehearsing live in The Martin Harris Centre this September! Chorus rehearsals will be open to returning and new members. As well as singing, we also host Q&A’s with guest speakers and have socials! During the academic year 2021/21 we sang a wide range of repertoire including: the Road Home’ by Stephen Paulus, ‘Shenandoah’ by James Erb, Greig’s ‘Ave Maris Stella’ and Elgar’s ‘The Snow’ and a selection of pieces composed by University of Manchester Music students.
We’re very eager to welcome back our returning members and to welcome new singers to the choir! Chorus rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7-9pm in the Cosmo Rodewald Concert Hall within the Martin Harris Centre. Our first two rehearsals on September 30th and October 7th are free to give you an insight into being a member of Chorus. After these taster sessions there is a small joining fee to register as a member. In order to register your interest in joining Chorus please complete this form here.
For up to date information regarding changes in restrictions for rehearsals due to the coronavirus pandemic please follow us on social media.
The Manchester University Choral Programme is made up of Manchester University Chorus, Ad Solem, and the Cosmo Singers. Led by Robert Guy, they perform in concerts in Manchester and further afield throughout the year. While Ad Solem and Cosmo Singers are auditioned ensembles made up of Music students, the University Chorus is not auditioned and includes both students and non-students of all ages.
The University of Manchester Music Department is proud to be a part of the Choral Leadership Network, an inclusive support network for choral leaders and singers.
Our aim is to promote the joy of choral singing through increased training and resource opportunities for choral leaders of all abilities and styles. Led by the Hallé, the partnership brings together the experience and expertise of a number of different choral organisations from across the country. Together, we aim to promote the quality, profile and opportunities for choral singing and training across the North West and beyond.
