NEWS: Forthcoming concerts: We’ll be singing music both secular and sacred celebrating love and St Valentine on 17 February at the United Reformed Church, Helensburgh and on 18 February at Shawlands Church, Glasgow. This latter concert is in aid of LEPRA. Tickets for both will be available on the door, or go to online sales to book in advance.
We rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30pm in the Royal College Assembly Hall at the University of Strathclyde. We are keen to welcome new members in all voice parts. Contact us for more information if you like the look of our programme, either as a member of the choir or of the audience.
If you’re serious about singing, love a musical challenge, and can sight read music (at least a little), then the Strathclyde University Chamber Choir might just be the choir for you! The Choir has expanded over the years, thanks to the growing popularity of a cappella singing, particularly renaissance and baroque music, close harmony, and new music.
And, although a choir of Strathclyde University, we’ve a wonderful mix of people from all walks of life – Students, Alumni, Staff, and singers from outside the University, many of whom travel a long way for their weekly “choral fix”!
Apart from our concert and fundraising activities in and around Glasgow, we make annual cathedral visits (which have included Carlisle, Chester, Durham, Edinburgh, Lincoln, Liverpool, Liverpool Met, and Ripon Cathedrals) to sing the major choral services in place of the regular Cathedral Choir, and have toured the Orkney Islands, Spain, Germany, Poland, Russia (Moscow) and the Middle East (including Jerusalem and Bethlehem). We have also been broadcast live and recorded for BBC Radio 2, Radio 3 and Radio 4.
We’re always on the look-out for new talent, so if you’ve sung in a choir or other vocal ensemble before,want to join a fun group of people, and like the look of what we’re planning, contact the conductor, Alan Tavener.
