About

W Group 1

The University of Essex Choir has developed a reputation as one of the finest large ensembles in East Anglia. We sing with top soloists and orchestras in world famous venues such as Snape Maltings Concert Hall. New members are very welcome – you don’t need to be a member of staff or student at the University. Our singers are from all walks of life; musical novices to experienced singers, some still at school, others working or retired.

COVID-19

Like other choirs the University of Essex Choir has been hit by the impact of COVID-19 restrictions. Although at the moment we can’t meet together to rehearse we rehearsing online via Zoom. If you are thinking about getting back to singing or would like to try out a choir, then why not join us for our online rehearsals and sing in the comfort of your own home?
If you are new to the choir please register your interest by emailing members@universityofessexchoir.org
How do rehearsals work on Zoom? We will send you a link to the online rehearsal along with a PDF attachment for the music we will be singing. Ben, our Musical Director will lead the rehearsal and will not be able to hear any individual voices during the Zoom rehearsal.
For summer term 2021 we will be rehearsing a delightful programme of European partsongs and madrigals. With the gradual easing of COVID restrictions we anticipate in-person rehearsals after the 21st June and hope to be able to perform outdoors on campus in July.

Be exceptional. Come and join us!
