ABOUT THE CLUB

The Monash University Choral Society (or MonUCS, as we call ourselves) is one of the oldest student-run clubs at Monash University, and continues to survive and thrive in the modern era. It was founded in 1962 by students who wanted to increase their knowledge and experience in choral music.
MonUCS performs concerts, provides live music for organisations such as the Melbourne Club, and puts on musical productions; giving their audience the opportunity to experience a diverse range of choral repertoire.
Recent performances have included participation in the Melbourne Intervarsity Choral Festival performance at the Melbourne Town Hall, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Rachmaninov’s Vespers and Gilbert and Sullivan’s "The Pirates of Penzance!"

The choir is non-auditioned, welcoming singers of all experience levels and offering them the chance to rehearse and perform a wide selection of high quality classical and contemporary repertoire.

In addition to MonUCS’ strong music culture, the choir is a very social group. Coffee or pub nights sometimes follow the conclusion of the weekly rehearsals, with choristers heading to a fellow chorister’s house or the nearby pub for a drink, socialising and random outbursts of singing. An annual dinner, movie nights, rehearsal camps and post-concert parties provide further opportunities for new members to get to know older faces within the choir and enjoy being around people who love music as much as they do.

We love making music together, and if you're interested in being part of a committed and vibrant group, we invite you to join us!

We rehearse each Tuesday night from 6:45 pm to 8:45 pm in the Religious Centre at Clayton campus, right next to campus centre. Join us any week during semester or email our secretary for more information. We look forward to meeting you!
