happy new year!
Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a joyous holiday period. If the prospect of more ULCC concerts in 2017 isn't enough, we have some exciting news to announce: we're recording a new CD this year! More info to follow, so watch this space...
We are a dynamic and enthusiastic choir of 26 singers, formed of students and former students from colleges of the University of London - a diverse and international ensemble.
The University of London Chamber Choir performs a wide-ranging repertoire from ancient to modern and popular to classical. Our recent concerts have included works by Britten, Monteverdi, Elgar and Eric Whitacre; Elizabethan madrigals and songs by Billy Joel, Cole Porter and Coldplay to name but a few.
We perform in the beautiful setting of St George's Church, London, several times a year. We have also led Evensong at Southwark Cathedral and regularly travel further afield. In the past few years we have sung in Kent, Essex and at Ely Cathedral. Following the success of our 2012 tour to Northern Italy and 2014 tour to Malta, last summer we revisited Italy, where we gave a number of concerts.
The ULCC is conducted by Dr Colin Durrant. Colin has a wide range of choral conducting and teaching experience and is principal conducting tutor on the standards and training unit for the Association of British Choral Directors. He has published many articles on choral conducting and music education.
'simple pictures' cd
Our CD 'Simple Pictures' (2011) reflects the varied and contrasting repertoire that the ULCC performs each year. We plan to record again in the coming year.Tweets by @ULCCuk
