Welcome to the VU-choir!

The VU-choir 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 Requiem Fauré for November 2019. Curious to know more? Click here.
