news & auditions

We had a lovely final concert of the year in Littlebury.

We're now on break over the summer, but will be holding auditions at the start of October. This includes a bit of singing from music of your choice, followed by a bit of sight reading. If you would like to apply for an audition, please fill out this form and we will be in touch with more information about the day. If you have questions about the choir in general then you can reach us at ulcc@hotmail.co.uk.

We'd also like to welcome in our new committee members: William Elger as treasurer and co-concert organiser with Flora Lait. Internally, Bill Boucher has been elected president, replacing Ian Buchanan and Grace Pitkethly has retained her post as secretary. Good luck and best wishes to you all!

ulcc singing

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 and 2014 tour to Malta, in the summer of 2016 we revisited Italy, where we gave a number of concerts.

conductor...

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.

'simple pictures' cd

New CD

Our CD 'Simple Pictures' (2011) reflects the varied and contrasting repertoire that the ULCC performs each year. We plan to record again in the coming year.
