The University of St Andrews Chamber Choir is a group of around 24 auditioned singers. The ensemble focuses on Western classical music from the 18th-21st centuries and provides students at the University with an opportunity to sing in a secular context.
Performances by the Choir are predominantly given a cappella (unaccompanied) and scored for Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass, often subdividing into 8 or more parts.
The group rehearses on a Thursday from 7-9pm in School VI, and usually get together socially afterwards.
In recent years, the choir has done some carolling around the town and had planned to embark on a tour to Germany in March (pre-Covid19).
The Choir’s repertoire is varied, featuring composers such as Rachmaninov, Vaughan-Williams, Tchaikovsky, Matthias, and Whitacre.

Auditions take place at the start of the academic year in the Music Centre. These consist of vocal-range exercises and some sight-singing. Candidates are encouraged to prepare a short unaccompanied piece but this is not mandatory.
To arrange an audition, find the Music Society stall at either the Music Fayre or the Freshers' Fayre. Alternatively, feel free to contact the managers directly via email or Facebook message.
