Ciências Choir - Everyone welcome! Everyone can sing!


Tuesdays 17-18.15, C3 Auditorium
Starting date: 3 March 2020

The meeting of 10 March was cancelled (prevention measures in relation to the new Coronavirus, COVID-19 - more information available here).


Ciências Choir will sing songs related to the topic of sustainability understood in a broader sense which integrates, apart from environmental sustainability also social sustainability, justice and well being. These include songs from around the world, e.g. Gospel, African songs, Brazilian songs, folk songs, traditionals... The intention behind choosing and singing these songs is to learn from the wisdom transported through them and to celebrate cultural diversity.

Ciências Choir is

  • inclusive and open to people from all walks of life, identities, all cultures, faith and abilities; 
  • non-auditioned - given the right conditions, all can learn to sing in tune and in harmony;
  • community-focused rather than performance oriented and socially and environmentally engaged.
