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? We are having open rehearsals on Monday the 8th and 15th of January 2024. This is during our regular rehearsal moments at 19:30 in the NU-building of the Vrije Universiteit, room 2 on the ground floor (big theater hall). For more info or questions, send an email to 

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 Johannes Passion by J.S. Bach, Verdi’s Requiem in Het Concertgebouw, and Gloria by Francis Poulenc. Our last project consisted of the Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten, Otčenáš by Leoš Janáček and Christmas Oratorio by Camille Saint-Saëns.
