About the King's University College Chamber Choir
Established in September 2010, the King's University College Chamber Choir consists of auditioned choral singers from the King's University College community and from the wider Western University and London communities. The choristers perform choral works in a variety of styles and genres throughout the ages. The desired outcome is for artistic and musical growth, and to foster a deeper appreciation of choral literature both for choristers and audience members. The choir is also dedicated to reaching out to the community by donating the proceeds of their performances to designated charitable organizations. They are proud to be the recipients of the 2016 Jack Richardson London Music Award for best choral group (classical).
