We look forward to meeting you all, hopefully sometime in the near future!!
LUUMS Chorus is an open ensemble within the society and we welcome anyone who loves to sing. The choir is not auditioned, just simply come along to one of our ‘give it a go’ sessions!
Chorus showcases a wide variety of music, so there is something for everyone. Last year our repertoire included Gospel songs like ‘Joyful, Joyful’ and ‘His Eye Is On The Sparrow’ as well as Disney classics like ‘Reflection’ from Mulan, and songs from films like ‘May It Be’ from The Lord Of The Rings’ and even the James Bond title song ‘Skyfall’. This year we have some exciting plans to explore some more Choral, Pop, Rock, and Show-tune arrangements - so come along to find out! Chorus also prides itself on being an inclusive community of singers, so we always support ideas or suggestions from members of the choir.
There are a variety of socials planned for this year including; the traditional post rehearsal social at Old Bar, nights out and food related fun. There’s also the regular LUUMS socials! Chorus performs in termly LUUMS concerts and we are looking to collaborate with other ensembles this year too.
Rehearsals are every Monday at 5.30-7.30, please feel free to come along, join in and sing; it's a sure way of beating those Monday blues!
Join our Facebook group if you would like to come along.
Mondays 5:00pm – 7:00pm
