Symphonic Choir is an exciting new choir which only became established as a LUUMS ensemble last year and is open to all singers! LUUMS has not tackled large choral works much in recent years, and so we are looking to give members a chance to work on some new and not-so-new repertoire in a relaxed environment. Our recent works include Hear my Prayer, O Lord by Purcell and Bach's Magnificat in D at our summer concert. We welcome singers of all abilities, although being able to read music will certainly aid you in having the most enjoyable experience. We rehearse Thursday evenings from 5:00-7:00pm in the School of Music and usually follow this by a trip to Old Bar.
Symphonic Choir rehearsals have now started but don't worry if you've missed the first couple - just come along and sing!

Kate is a singer and violinist, and a final year BA Theatre And Performance student. After having sung in choirs and ensembles for most of her life, she joined Symphonic Choir last year and enjoyed it so much that she decided to try conducting as well. She’s really excited to share the repertoire she loves with the choir, and is hoping that Symphonic Choir will be a space for people who love singing to enjoying learning new music. Kate has also been a dedicated member of LUU OperaSoc since her first year, and plays viola in Leeds Symphony Orchestra. Feel free to chat to her about anything from Elizabethan Madrigals to which recording of Les Mis is the best!
