Opportunity to join a choir at UEA

UEA’s popular Symphony Orchestra and Choir are looking for new members to join them for their 2013-14 concert season. If you are a keen orchestral player or singer, please come along and audition!

Both the UEA Symphony Orchestra and Choir rehearse weekly and perform at least two concerts, each academic year, at some of Norwich’s most prestigious concert venues, such as St Andrew’s Hall and Norwich Cathedral.

This Autumn’s performances include: a fun open-rehearsal of the Finale of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony on Saturday, September 28; a performance with Norwich Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir of Britten’s War Requiem on Saturday, November 9; a concert of Elgar’s Cello Concerto and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 on Friday, November 15; and a Christmas carol concert on Wednesday, December 4. In the Spring, there will be a combined UEA Symphony Orchestra and Choir concert on Friday, March 14 and a UEA Symphony Orchestra tour of France.

Further details of the coming concert season can be found at http://www.uea.ac.uk/music/music-events Both the UEA Symphony Orchestra and Choir are open, by audition, to all UEA staff and students, as well as members of the local community.

If you are interested in joining either ensemble, please come along to one of our auditions on: Wednesday, September 25; Friday, September 27; or Monday, September 30 (please email musicevents@uea.ac.uk to arrange an audition time).
