Leicester University Chamber Choir

Leicester University Chamber Choir is a group around 35 singers, based at the University of Leicester. We perform regularly in Leicester and further afield, and enjoy exploring a wide variety of choral repertoire, both sacred and secular. Our membership is drawn mainly from the University's student body (both undergraduate and postgraduate), but we also welcome Associate members, often from other local universities, colleges and 6th Forms.

Leicester University Chamber Choir is run by an annually elected committee from our student membership, who volunteer their time behind the scenes. We employ professional musicians, in our Musical Director and Accompanist/Vocal Coach, to enable us to perform at a high standard and achieve our potential.

The choir has improved leaps and bounds in recent years. We have become increasingly ambitious, performing in traditional concerts and liturgical settings across the UK and abroad. Sherborne Abbey, St. David's Cathedral, Salisbury Cathedral, Berlin Cathedral and St. Mark's Basilica have all welcomed us to sing in recent years. We have also extended our outreach work, performing at many local community and charity events each year.

Our aim is to continue delivering outstanding and increasingly varied choral music to audiences of all ages and backgrounds for years to come. In a university with no academic music faculty, it is also important that we remain self-sufficient to ensure future generations of University of Leicester students can have the opportunity to pursue singing.

We wouldn’t be where we are now as a choir without the support of many generous donors over the years. To give something back to those who pledge to support the choir in all its various endeavours, this summer we are unveiling a PATRONAGE SCHEME offering exciting benefits in return for offerings of financial support.

Patrons of the choir will pay an annual contribution in return for specified rewards, which will include your name in our concert programme, complimentary tickets and reserved seats of your choice for you and your party, and a complimentary LUCC CD. Higher levels of patronage will offer benefits including an LUCC ensemble made available to sing for you at a private function.

In a financial climate that is increasingly difficult for the arts, we rely heavily on our own fundraising in order to continue to support our musical projects. It is hoped that this new initiative will help us to increase the scope of our fundraising, and help us to remain financially self-sufficient.

If you would like to be added to the PATRONAGE INFORMATION MAILING LIST, or if you would like to support us in any other way, however small, then simply fill in the form below or email su-chamberchoir@le.ac.uk

Thank you for your support.
