Our student Chamber Choir has gathered an enviable reputation and offers singers with some experience and sight-reading ability the chance to rehearse and perform challenging repertoire from the Renaissance to the present day. We regularly sing in prestigious venues such as Salisbury and Winchester Cathedrals, Christchurch Priory, Wimborne Minster and St. Peter’s Church, Bournemouth, as well as on our own campuses.
Rehearsals: Wednesdays, 5pm - 6.30pm
Annual subscription: Free to all BU and AUB students.
