UEA Ensembles UEA Ensembles

The University runs three well-established musical ensembles, UEA Choir, UEA Chamber Choir and UEA Symphony Orchestra. All ensembles rehearse weekly and perform a series of concerts each year at some of Norwich’s most prestigious concert venues. They enjoy an excellent reputation, both locally and further afield, and have in the past attracted internationally-renowned musicians such as Steven Isserlis, Sir Colin Davis, Jiří Bělohlávek, Paul Silverthorne, Diana Moore and Jeremy White, to work and perform with them. 

Auditions for all three ensembles will take place on Friday 30 September and Monday 3 October in the UEA Music Centre. For further information or to book an audition slot, please email musicevents@uea.ac.uk. If you are requesting an audition, please state in your email, your voice type (if known) or instrument and what (if any) musical experience you have.
