Leiden English Choir … is a dynamic group of people of many nationalities and age groups. We regularly welcome members who are international students and are in Leiden for a period of time. Rehearsals are largely held in English.
Two concerts per year … in and around Leiden: one in the Christmas period with, among other things, traditional carols – and a classical or modern concert in the spring of the year. We sing works by Britten, Vaughan Williams and Rutter, but also Pärt, Gjeilo, Vasks, Händel, Fauré , Rossini, Schütz, Lotti, and Byrd.
Social and serious … we work hard and take rehearsals and our music seriously – always trying to achieve the highest possible quality. We are also a social group of fun people that enjoy spending time together – weekly visits to the local cafe after rehearsak, a monthly ‘borrel’ organized in turn by each of the voice groups in the choir, and post-concert parties to share in the after glow.
