The University of Greenwich Choir is a non-auditioning Choir bringing together students, staff, alumni and friends of the University of Greenwich to make music in a sociable environment. The Choir performs a wide range of music, from George Frederic Handel to George Michael, with recent performances including a Bollywood hit, a Nigerian Christmas Carol, and music sung in Russian and Argentinian Spanish. They have given concerts in collaboration with a wide range of guest musicians, including the new Royal Greenwich and Blackheath Halls Youth Choir, with whom they performed Vivaldi’s Gloria in March 2016.

The University Choir usually meets in Greenwich on Monday evenings during term-time – check the ‘Rehearsal schedule’ page for more details.

New members are always welcome. All you have to do is turn up to a rehearsal!
