University Choir

The Luxembourg University Community Choir is a mix of energetic voices sharing harmonies that inspire the Luxembourg community.

Under the direction of Tom Gareau, a professional singer and vocal pedagogue, the choir evolves into a group that excels in their willingness to perform various arrangements in a variety of musical genres. In addition to smaller performances spread over the year, they crown every academic semester (Christmas or summer concert) with a series of performances with their complete program of works (classic to contemporary).

The choir is also a place to broaden your musical horizons, and offers a wonderful opportunity to meet other talented musicians. The aim of the university choir is to offer our singers and our audience a stimulating musical experience

Membership in the choir is open to all musicians in the campus community: students, doctoral candidates, lecturers, staff and members of Luxembourg society. Previous knowledge of singing and / or some knowledge of sight reading is recommended. Admission to the choir takes place through an audition! Feel welcome and sing along!
