BE A PART OF
KING'S UNIVERSITY COLLEGE CHAMBER CHOIR!


Our 2020-2021 season is shaping up to be a season like no other, as we are still in the midst of a global pandemic. In compliance with current health guidelines, we are not yet able to engage in normal choral activity as we know it. In the meantime, we plan on carrying on as the vibrant community that we are, engaging in mainly virtual projects and building on choral skills and repertoire knowledge. We look forward to the day that we can perform live for our audiences once again!

Interested in auditioning for the choir? Contact Janet Loo at janet.loo@kings.uwo.ca to set up a virtual audition.

 

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 Forest City London Music Award for best choral group (classical).
