At the beginning of each semester, we organise open rehearsals where prospective members can get to know our choir and sign up for auditions. The current round of open rehearsals has concluded. The next round will take place in September 2023. Want to know more? Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages or e-mail us via email@example.com
Everyone is welcome to join us, a connection to the University is not needed. Neither is a background in music, though you do need a good voice and ear–as well as good cheer and dedication! Candidate members must audition for the choir. During the auditions you will do some singing exercises and sing a song you have prepared beforehand. Results are announced within a few days.
Per academic semester (five months) we work on a repertoire, which we perform during a concert at the end of the semester. It is not possible to join the UM choir halfway a semester. We rehearse every Tuesday in the inner city of Maastricht. In addition to these weekly rehearsals, we also hold two rehearsal weekends per year, one General Members Assembly, and regular social events. We do not rehearse during the Carnival, Christmas and summer breaks.
We expect members to attend a substantial part of the rehearsals. If you miss rehearsals, please practice at home to prevent holding up the choir. Members’ attendance is also required during the rehearsal weekends and the General Members Assembly. Our membership fee is €50,- for students and €70,- for non-students per semester. This fee covers the rehearsal weekends, two social events, and the music scores.
