Queensland University Musical Societypowered by TidyHQ
QUMS is a community choir open to all members of the public regardless of age or musical ability, with no audition requirement. You don't have to be a UQ student or alumni to join! New members are always welcome, so come and try us out - we would love to see you there! More information is available here.
QUMS rehearses at the University of Queensland (UQ) St Lucia Campus, on Wednesday nights from 7.00 PM to 9.30 PM with a break in the middle. For Semester 2 2021, regular rehearsals will be held in the Physiology Building, room 63-348.
COVID permitting, we hope to perform two major concerts in 2021. Our first, Lost and Found, was recently held on May 29th. Our second, Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, will be on the last weekend of October — and everyone's invited! Pre-registration is now open.
Between, before and after our major concerts, we will compete at Eisteddfod over Easter, sing Christmas carols throughout December, get away for a weekend of rehearsal camp, enjoy a post-rehearsal coffee each week, make new friends and have a lot of fun!
It's a QUMS tradition that about once every decade, we put on a performance of Carmina Burana. This year, we're inviting choristers from every choir in Brisbane to join us — perhaps this means you!
We're still finalising the venue details, but it will be held on the last weekend of October.
Rehearsals will be on Wednesday nights, and at least one full-day Saturday.
If you're interested in joining us as a chorister for Carmina, or if you'd just like to stay updated, please click here to pre-register!
Audience tickets will go on sale closer to the date.
