[AUDITION] The Cambridge University Musical Society Chorus
***Join The Cambridge University Musical Society Chorus – Auditioning Now***
CUMS Chorus is Cambridge’s leading philharmonic choir, performing grand scale choral works to a consistently high standard in a friendly and relaxed environment. Conducted by the acclaimed conductor Stephen Cleobury (Director of Music at King’s College Choir), we are a diverse choir of approximately 120 members of all ages and backgrounds, from within the university and beyond. This gives us the opportunity to perform a large scale work every term, in iconic venues such as Ely Cathedral and the Chapel of King’s College, with leading soloists and orchestras. We also offer the opportunity for world-class vocal tuition at modest cost, allowing singers of all abilities to improve their technique. We rehearse every Thursday evening during term time (7:30-9:45pm) in Wesley Methodist Church, Christ’s Pieces. This year’s performances will include: Britten’s War Requiem, Vaughan Williams Sea Symphony and Verdi Requiem.
CUMS Chorus represents a unique opportunity within Cambridge to perform the large choral repertoire. If you are interested in joining, please check out our website.
To book a short audition, please contact our registrars at chorus.registrar Auditions will be held on Saturday 11th October 1.30–3.30pm, Tuesday 14th October 2-4pm.
