Southampton University Chamber Choir
University of Southampton
Southampton University Chamber Choir is a small selection of elite musicians studying a wide selection of subjects at the University of Southampton.
We sing a range of choral music, mainly sacred classical music but also some more modern music recently, such as 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' and 'Moon River'. The choir is split into 8 separate voice parts, with two to four people to each part.
Our Musical Director, Simon Petitte, is a world renowned musician having conducted choirs based in the UK and Germany. You can find out more about him by visiting his website
We tour a European city every Easter, most recently Vienna and Amsterdam. In 2020 we will travel to Barcelona where we aim to perform 2-3 concerts in some of the city's major choral venues.
Competitive auditions are held at the beginning of each year enabling us to choose the best selection of singers from across the university.
The choir is currently financed by its members' subscription fees, concert profits and some small grants from the university union.
