The Choir
The VU-koor is a lively student choir in Amsterdam that strives to introduce the joys of singing to as many people as possible. For this reason there are no auditions, but nonetheless the choir achieves a high musical level, as evidenced by the concerts we give, which we invite you to come to!
The repertoire consists of an interesting and diverse mix of classical and modern-classical music by composers such as Mozart, Brahms, Rutter, Whitacre, Rossini and Poulenc. The repertoire, the sound and composition of the choir determine its distinctive identity and give it a unique position in the Dutch choral world.
In addition to the weekly rehearsals we also organize activities such as movie nights, choir weekends, drinks, picnics and more. If you are studying in Amsterdam or you will be doing so at the VU, the HvA or the UvA; or if you just love to sing and want to meet and socialise with other like-minded people, please join us!
If you’d like more information about the choir, please email info@vukoor.nl.

Rehearsals
The choir rehearses every Monday from 19:30 to 21:45 in the Griffioen Cultural Centre, Uilenstede 106, 1183 AM Amstelveen, 020-5985100. Uilenstede is accessible by public transport with trams 5 and 51. The rehearsals are always open to interested parties.
At the start of a new project we always organise several open rehearsals where it is possible to see if the choir is of your liking without any further obligation.
