University of Cape Town Choir

University of Cape Town Choir

The UCT Choir is the most diverse musical group at the University of Cape Town. It is a fully student-run ensemble which welcomes students from every faculty and discipline, as well as alumni and external members.

The forty-person choir, currently under the direction of John Woodland, is an active participant in the musical life of Cape Town. Singers and audiences are exposed to a rich variety of choral music from classical to contemporary genres, drawing strongly on our own South African musical heritage.

Annual events include participation in the Last Night of the Proms charity concerts in the Cape Town City Hall, a Winter Concert at St Paul’s Church in Rondebosch and various other performances on campus and around Cape Town. The year always ends with the choir’s showcase ‘Jammie Concert’ in Jameson Hall on UCT’s Upper Campus.

This year (2012), the UCT Choir released its second CD in February and participated in the ‘Infecting the City’ public arts festival in March. In May, the UCT Choir was awarded three diplomas (90-100%) as well as the prize for the Most Outstanding Senior Choir in the Cape Town Eisteddfod.

The UCT Choir rehearses on Monday and Thursday evenings from 19h00-21h00 at UCT’s South African College of Music (SACM) on Lower Campus.
