The VU-Kamerkoor is a classical chamber choir from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU) and was founded in the early 1970’s. It is made up of thirty ambitious singers, with a mix of enthusiastic youthfulness and wise experience. This wide range can also be found in the repertoire of the choir, ranging from ancient music to brand new compositions with accompaniment or a cappella. Since September 2016 the choir has been led by the scintillating conductor Krista Audere.
