UNSW's large choir known as the Collegium Musicum Choir was founded in 1975 by Professor Roger Covell and Dr Patricia Brown, and has a long tradition of performing choral-orchestral works and Christmas programs at UNSW to a semi-professional standard. The choir's membership includes undergraduate students from across the university, as well as postgraduates, staff and members of the community - all are welcome.
The Collegium Musicum performs familiar repertoire including oratorios, masses, requiems and other sacred works, and secular works appropriate to a large choir. The choir has a wonderful social aspect as well as focusing strongly on musical performance. It is a significant part of the cultural fabric of UNSW, bringing local and international students from across the university together with staff and members of the local community to collaborate in public performance.
Singing in the choir for weekly rehearsals (3 hours), related preparation of repertoire, and public performances.
Voice placement during O Week, involving singing a short unaccompanied song of own choice. Please email to book a time.
