About us

Free for students and with no audition or previous experience necessary, the University of Warwick Chorus is the largest choir on campus, boasting around 250 members. The Chorus attracts students and staff from the University as well as members from the local community, coming together to rehearse once a week under the batons of the Director and Assistant Director of Music. Warwick Chorus is a welcoming space to engage with choral singing at a high standard and enjoy being a part of a community choir with shared voices of novices, enthusiasts, the vocally trained, and the university’s Choral Scholars.


The repertoire is wide and varied, to accommodate a range of skills and tastes, from the traditional to the avant-garde and ambitious. Recent large-scale performances have included Brahms’ Schicksalslied with the University of Warwick Symphony Orchestra, Faure’s Requiem, and Mozart’s Requiem, as well as folk songs. Past years have included Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the visiting Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra. Frequent collaboration creates plenty of opportunities to meet and connect with students, musicians and enthusiasts from across the Music Centre and the University. You’ll get to sing and go on socials with the Chamber Choir, Opera Warwick, Acapella, Music Theatre Warwick, and more!


Concerts are performed at least once a term, usually in the Butterworth Hall on campus, seating around 1500; and occasionally off campus in venues such as the spectacular home of the CBSO, Symphony Hall, Birmingham and Birmingham Town Hall. We have performed with professional orchestras, as well as our own talented Symphony and Wind Orchestras.


We tour regularly with the Symphony Orchestra, in recent years travelling to destinations such as Krakow, Milan, Konstanz and Slovenia.


We rehearse every Thursday evening, from 7-9.30pm in term-time in the Woods-Scawen Room in the Arts Centre. You don’t need to register or prepare anything - just turn up, and you’ll be provided with music, support, any further information and most importantly a friendly choral community! Chorus is a really fun experience and if you’re in any way nervous or unsure, you can drop a message to us on our socials.
