LUUMS CHAMBER CHOIR

LUUMS Chamber Choir is the auditioned vocal group of the music society, comprising around 16 students who share the same passion for music and choral singing. The choir has a strong sense of belonging and inclusion, with members studying a variety of university degrees.

 

We aim to sing a diverse range of repertoire, previously performing works by Allegri, Tchaikovsky and Poulenc, whilst also incorporating more modern pieces. Chamber Choir is a chance to enjoy singing of a high standard within a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We perform in concerts at the end of each term and take part in other music activities throughout the year, for example Christmas carolling. These performances all lead up to the main event of the year: the Chamber Choir tour! 

 

The choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm, and rehearsals are usually followed by a trip to Old Bar in the SU for a chance to socialise in a non-music setting.

Tuesdays 7.30pm – 9.30pm

Rehearsal Hall, School of Music

Jenny Lucking

Manager

Hi everyone I’m Jenny, and I’m a fourth year BA Music student. I’ve recently finished my Arts Administration Year in Industry placement managing a vocal ensemble named The Apex Singers. The placement gave me absolutely incredible experience and it has really prepared me for managing LUUMS Chamber Choir this year. I’m currently a member of The Hallé Choir in Manchester and was in the Youth Choir as well. In my second year at uni I was manager of Symphonic Choir, and in my first year I sang with a number of choirs including Chamber Choir, Symphonic Choir and Leeds Baroque. I’ve always had a passion for singing and been a bit of a choral nerd, so it makes sense that I want to manage a professional vocal ensemble after my fourth year! Having the experience of singing with & managing LUUMS choirs as well as working with The Apex Singers last year, I’m really looking forward to managing Chamber Choir this year!

Chris Hughes 

Conductor 

Christopher Hughes (20), originally from Nantwich, Cheshire, has played the piano ever since he was 5 years old. During his sixth form education at Chetham’s School of Music, Chris studied the piano with Mr John Gough, taking up the Organ as a second study with Mr Christopher Stokes, Organist of Manchester Cathedral. During this time, he also became interested in choral music and first began singing in choirs. Now a second year student at Leeds University studying Music, Chris also holds the title of Organ Scholar at Leeds RC Cathedral under the tutelage of David Pipe. In his time at university, he sang with and accompanied LUUMS’ Symphonic Choir. Last year (2020/21), Chris had the privilege of conducting the Chamber Choir through weekly online rehearsals, as well as continuing to participate in online rehearsals with LUUMS’ Symphony Orchestra, Symphonic Choir, the Opera Society and Leeds Cathedral. Chris eagerly looks forward to conducting the Chamber Choir again this coming year, and to performing live music once again. "
