UEA Choir enjoys membership from students, staff and members of the public. The choir, under the direction of conductor Tom Primrose, rehearses on campus, every Monday (7.30pm-9.30pm), during the autumn and spring semesters. Performances take place throughout the year, both solo and in collaboration with either UEA Symphony Orchestra or another local orchestra. Recent performances by the choir include Dvořák’s Mass in D Major, Op. 86 (with UEA Symphony Orchestra) at St Andrew's Hall, Handel's Messiah (with Norwich Baroque) at St Andrew's Hall and Britten’s Ballad of Heroes (with BBC Cardiff Singer of the World 2013 Audience Prize winner Ben Johnson) at Norwich Cathedral. UEA Choir have also recently been on a tour of Caen.
