The Choir is an exciting new ensemble that is forming in 2020 and led by professional conductor and Artistic Director for Music at Reading, Victoria Ely. Repertoire will be chosen from the wealth of amazing accompanied choral music, ranging from some of the great choral classics eg. Faure Requiem, Mozart Mass in C minor, to smaller, more contemporary gems. The Choir is perfect for anyone who wants to sing in a large ensemble to a high standard.
- No audition.
- Some previous vocal or instrumental experience.
- Ability to read music.
Out of respect for fellow choir members, musicians should be prepared to commit to arriving punctually and attending every rehearsal unless there is a valid reason approved by the director in advance. Membership of this ensemble is prioritised for students and staff of the University of Reading; as such alumni and community members may be asked to complete an informal voice or playing test before membership is confirmed.
