About Us

We will not be holding auditions this semester. See our Spring 2021 Update for more details.

UC Women’s Chorale (UCWC) is a female, student-run singing group at the University of California, Berkeley under the parent organization UC Choral Ensembles.  UCWC is one of the most diverse singing groups on campus, featuring up to 50 talented ladies with varying backgrounds and musical experience. We are always happy to accept new singers! Our repertoire covers everything from Renaissance madrigals to contemporary pop — accompanied, a cappella, student-arranged, you name it!

UCWC performs on campus throughout the academic year.  We would love to see you at our next performance.  Our annual concerts include Welcome Back to a Cappella, Big Sing against Stanford, and of course, our bi-annual lively and humorous themed shows with UC Men’s Chorale.

We also may perform on Sproul regularly this semester! If fun, quick performances at UC Berkeley’s main plaza sound cool to you, tell us you’re interested and we’ll be even more likely to do it. Take a glance at our past live performances on the UC Berkeley A Capella Facebook page!

If you would like to learn more about UC Women’s Chorale, you may contact the UCWC student manager Alli Madden.


Interested in joining?

Our rehearsals are between 4:00 and 6:00 PM Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Two of these will be full-group rehearsals, and one will be one-hour sectionals happening one of the three days. If you become a member of UC Women’s Chorale, we expect regular attendance, though exceptions can be made for recurring class conflicts.

If you know you want to join, or even if you’re just on the fence, audition! We’re happy to hear you and welcome you for practice rehearsals until you decide if you want to become a regular member of the group!

Check out our Auditions page here for more info! Auditions for the Fall 2019 cycle will begin the first week of September, so stay tuned!
