Auditions have now closed for the 2019/20 academic year! We typically do not audition singers during the academic year.
We recruit new members at the beginning of each academic year. We are an auditioned choir, as we believe this allows us to maintain a high standard and a good vocal blend. To audition, you must be a current student of the colleges of the University of London and have some experience in choral singing.
What should I expect in the audition?
The audition is very short - no longer than 5 minutes. We ask you to prepare any unaccompanied song of your choice. There will also be a short sight-reading exercise. It will be very friendly and informal!
When do we rehearse?
During term time, we rehearse once a week on Tuesday evenings 6:30-8:30 at Student Central. On concert days we have a late afternoon rehearsal at the venue. We look for a high level of commitment from our members to ensure that we reach the high standard that we are capable of! Therefore, attendance at weekly rehearsals and concerts is compulsory.
Interested in joining?
Auditions for the 2018/19 academic year are now over. If you are interested in joining in the 2019/20 academic year, please keep an eye on our social media for sign-up announcements.

How much does ULCC membership cost?
If you are successful at the audition stage, we ask that you pay for ULCC membership:
For Full Members of Student Central, ULCC membership costs £50 per year
For Associate Members and Alumni Members of Student Central, ULCC membership costs £75 per year
This money goes towards sheet music for the choir’s library, the costs of running rehearsals as well as little perks throughout the year such as free food and drinks! In addition, this summer all choir members were able to take part in a four-day tour around East Anglia for no extra cost (including travel, accommodation and activities)!
