Thank-you for all the interest in auditions for ULCC over the last few weeks. The choir would like to say a warm welcome to our new members, as we begin rehearsing for the autumn concert this term!
We are a dynamic and enthusiastic choir of 26 singers, formed of students and former students from colleges of the University of London - a diverse and international ensemble.
The University of London Chamber Choir performs a wide-ranging repertoire from ancient to modern and popular to classical. Our recent concerts have included works by Britten, Monteverdi, Elgar and Eric Whitacre; Elizabethan madrigals and songs by Billy Joel, Cole Porter and Coldplay to name but a few.
We perform in the beautiful setting of St George's Church, London, several times a year. We have also led Evensong at Southwark Cathedral and regularly travel further afield. In the past few years we have sung in Kent, Essex and at Ely Cathedral. Following the success of our 2012 tour to Northern Italy, last summer took us to Malta where we gave a number of concerts.
The ULCC is conducted by Dr Colin Durrant. Colin has a wide range of choral conducting and teaching experience and is principal conducting tutor on the standards and training unit for the Association of British Choral Directors. He has published many articles on choral conducting and music education.
