The choir of Lincoln College holds a reputation as one of the finest mixed-voice chapel choirs at the University of Oxford. Containing between 16 and 18 members, the choir gives talented singers the opportunity to make music in a more intimate setting at a detailed and high level. During term time, the choir's modest commitment includes a weekly Sunday evensong and Wednesday evening rehearsal, with the occasional additional service for major church and college feast days. This allows the choir to pursue exciting concert and touring schedules outside of the busy university term time.
The college are also very fortunate to have acclaimed soprano, Bronwen Mills, as the singing teacher in residence, and lessons are offered with her on a weekly basis free of charge. Drawing its members from across Oxfordshire, in and outside the university, the choir also maintains an active social life and strong community spirit.
Joining the choir
Joining the choir is subject to audition. The Chapel Precentors are happy to hear from singers interested in auditioning all year round, though most auditions take place in Freshers' Week. Please fill out the audition application form if you would like to arrange an audition.
The choir is organised, conducted and accompanied by the two Chapel Precentors, who are assisted by an organ scholar and the choral scholars. Find out more about the scholarships on offer here.
