About the UCT Choir

The UCT Choir is the most diverse musical group at the University of Cape Town. It is a fully student-run ensemble which welcomes students from every faculty and discipline as well as alumni and external members.

The fifty-person choir, currently under the direction of Kurt Haupt, was founded in 1985 and is an active participant in the musical life of Cape Town. Singers and audiences are exposed to a rich variety of choral music from classical to contemporary genres, both sacred and secular.

The choir has toured around the country and hopes to make its international debut soon. In 2010 the choir released its first CD which featured music from its 25th anniversary year, and has since released two additional CDs with its repertoire.

Annual events include participation in the Last Night of the Proms charity concerts in the Cape Town City Hall, a Winter Concert at St Paul’s Church in Rondebosch, flash mobs, carol services and various other performances on campus and around Cape Town. The year always ends with the choir's showcase Year-End Gala Concert, usually held on UCT campus.
