Ad Solem

Ad Solem Logo

Ad Solem is a student-run auditioned chamber choir based at the University of Manchester as part of the Manchester University Music Society. We open auditions every year for new members. The choir enjoys singing an eclectic range of music, regularly performing around the North West of England. Ad Solem have also been on tours including Hungary, Estonia, and Italy. Recent performances include collaborations with the Hallé and an appearance on the BBC’s Songs of Praise. Each term, the choir performs in the Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama, which is also where we are based for rehearsals, which are 1900-2100 on Thursdays.

The choir’s director is Rory Johnston, assisted by Alex Robinson and Seb Marshall.

The next Ad Solem Concert is on 7th May at 7.30pm at St Ann's Church featuring an evening of German and English choral music including that of Distler, Haydn, Britten and Pearsall.
