About

Swansea University Choral Society is a vibrant and active community of singers. With a Main Choir and Chamber Choir, we have something for everyone.

 

!! For our Covid update and FAQ's please see the bottom of this page !!

 

Our Choirs

The Choral Society has two choirs

   • Main Choir, a large unauditioned choir singing pieces from all over the musical landscape. Includes pop, contemporary, classical and musicals.

   • Chamber Choir, a smaller auditioned choir singing mostly classical and contemporary pieces. Chamber members are usually also Main choir members, although it is possible to only be in Chamber.

**Choral Society membership is required to sing in both or just one of the choirs. **

You do not need to sight-read or have any choral experience to be part of our choirs. Whether your background is in youth choirs, shower singing, Cathedral singing or car singing, we'll have something you'll enjoy.

 

Performances

Due to Covid-19 we have had to postpone all of our regularly scheduled performances.

Our regular large performances include a Christmas and Summer concert in St Pauls Sketty, as well as a Chamber choir concert in the Great Hall. We also typicallly perform on stage at the Summer Ball and perform with other Musicians Societies at various Uni events throughout the year.

We have performed far and wide. In Easter 2019 we toured in Estonia as part of the European Student Orchestra Festival, and in 2018 we went to New York to sing in Carnegie Hall with The Kings Singers.  We also sing at some local community events throughout the year.

GENERAL INTEREST FORM: https://forms.gle/Q9PVJYRZJ8rGtnwJ7

For the time being, we are running a 'Small Groups' project. In short, we are bunching singers with similar taste and ability into small unauditioned groups of ~6 that are able to sing together whilst following Covid guidelines. These will be led by a group leader who will be there to give direction and help where it's needed. This is a great opportunity for everyone from shower singers to sight singers to get singing again in a friendly environment. To register your interest for this, please fill out the below form.

FAQ's

What is the difference between the membership the types?

All Swansea Uni students should purchase Standard membership, Associate membership is for people who aren't students (e.g SU staff, recent graduates, ect.).

When do I have to purchase membership?

Feel free to attend your first few rehearsals, no membership required. If you decide that the Choral Society is something you would like to continue past your taster rehearsals, you will need to purchase society membership.

Is it too late for me to join?

You can join the Choral Society at any point, we will be accepting new singers throughout the term!

Do you have plans for singing in groups of more than 6?

Our aim is to get everyone singing as soon as possible, as safe as possible. If the opportunity arises where we are able to have more than 6 people singing together, we will initially combine singers from our small groups into whatever size choirs we are able to have.

What are the plans for Chamber?

We will be running a few Small Groups that function at a Chamber level of singing with the hope that this will prepare singers for when we can restart Chamber.
