Who we are...
The Oxford University Student Chorus is the University's largest non-auditioning choir. Numbering over 100 singers, we are committed to bringing together both experienced and first-time singers from all parts of the University and with any (or no) musical background, through the performance of larger scale choral works. The Chorus is regularly joined by Oxford's finest vocal soloists and orchestral musicians for their termly concerts, and is currently conducted by Richard Dawson, a second year music student at Keble College.
Recent concerts have included: Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem, Orff's Carmina Burana, Handel's Coronation Anthems, Bach's Christmas Oratorio, Beethoven's Mass in C major, and Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle. The Chorus performs regularly at the Sheldonian Theatre, and has recently held concerts at the University Church, as well as various College Chapels.
As Oxford's premier non-auditioning choir anyone is welcome to join - enthusiasm and commitment to the weekly rehearsals (Mondays, 7:30pm-9:30pm) is of course essential! OUSC appoints a new conductor annually at the end of Trinity term.
