Welcome to the VU-koor!

The VU-koor is a big and diverse Amsterdam student choir. All music-loving students are welcome, regardless of voice type and level of experience. Each academic year, we have weekly rehearsals in order to perform several beautiful concerts. In recent years, we’ve performed pieces such as Petite Messe Solennelle by Rossini, Brahms’s Requiem, the Ceremony of Carols by Britten and the Johannes Passion by J.S. Bach. Our next project is Verdi’s Requiem in March 2022, in collaboration with Delfts studenten muziekgezelschap Krashna Musica. Curious to know more? Click here.

Sing with us!

The “VU” in VU-koor stands for its connection with the Vrije Universiteit, but the name also stands for “Verenigd Universiteit Koor”, which means “United University Choir”. This conveys that anyone can join our choir, no matter what university, academy or college they study at. In fact, even non-students are welcome! Whether you’ve enjoyed a complete musical education or just want to see if singing is your cup of tea, you’re welcome with us. Are you looking for a nice activity next to your study or work, lots of fun, and not least of all a lot of musicality? Want to come and sing in our choir? Send an email to info@vukoor.nl 


On Monday September 6, 13 and 20 2021 we have open rehearsals. We rehearse at the NU-building at the Vrije Universiteit (De Boelelaan 1111, Ground floor, Theaterzaal on the right), from 19.30 to 21.45h. These rehearsals are open to anyone, no auditions needed.

Please bring a face mask as they are mandatory in the halls of all VU buildings. Because of the current health crisis we are trying as much as possible to follow the RIVM guidelines. If you have any questions contact us at info@vukoor.nl.


Several times a year we have the pleasure of finally putting rehearsal into practice and give a beautiful concert. Our next concerts:
– March 2022, Messa di Requiem by Verdi, collaboration concert with Krashna Musica at The Concertgebouw.
