Melbourne University Choral Society (MUCS), one of Victoria’s leading choirs, was founded in 1939. With over 400 members, we are an un-auditioned choir open to MU students, other students and members of the general public.
Our concerts are performed in Melbourne’s leading venues, often with professional orchestras, choirs and soloists. Recent highlights include performances of Verdi’s ‘Requiem’ in Hamer Hall, John Rutter’s ‘Gloria’ in Deakin Edge and Mozart’s ‘Great Mass in C Minor’ in St Paul’s Cathedral, as well as Vaughn Williams’ ‘A Sea Symphony’ and Vivaldi’s ‘Magnificat’. MUCS also regularly performs with international choirs from the United States and Europe.
This is a big year for the choir with several planned tours on the horizon – details for both an interstate as well as an international tour are being finalised. At the start of 2017 some members of MUCS had the opportunity to participate in a European choir tour through Germany, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, and the Czech Republic. Watch this space for our official tour announcements!
The choir is under the direction of one of Australia’s foremost choral conductors, Andrew Wailes. If you’d like to join, come along on Wednesdays, 6.45pm at St Mary’s College Frewin Room, just off Tin Alley. For further information, visit mucs.org.au.
