Vivamus is a small, London-based chamber choir whose members are predominantly postgraduate students and young professionals. We enjoy singing a diverse and challenging range of repertoire from well-known classics to new works by living composers.
We rehearse weekly and aim to perform at least four times a year at venues in and around central London. We frequently perform in St Clement Danes RAF Church on The Strand (where we rehearse every week) and have also performed at St Martin-in-the-Fields and St James’, Piccadilly. We’re excited to be returning to St James’ Piccadilly in May 2023 for a baroque themed concert with orchestra.
We also organise away weekends to sing in UK cathedrals, visiting Belfast, Lincoln and York in recent years, and we’re looking forward to singing the services at St Albans Cathedral over the bank holiday weekend in August 2023.
We’re a friendly, informal group who love to welcome new members; we currently have vacancies in all parts. Most – though not all – of us have previous experience such as singing in chapel choirs, university or college choirs, or other chamber choirs.
If you enjoy singing varied SATB music, come along to St Clement Danes for a couple of Thursday rehearsals to get to know us. After that, we ask you to do a simple audition to join formally. If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you!
Try us out
We’ll be running an informal ‘come and sing’ event on Thursday 19 January 2023 specifically aimed at new members. If that date doesn’t work for you, not a problem – feel free to come along to another of our Thursday rehearsals instead.
