Under the baton of Professor Nelson Kwei, Singapore’s premier choral director, The NUSChoir is committed to promoting excellence in choral music within the NUS community, Singapore and beyond. The group was formed in 1980 and comprises over 70 students and alumni from various NUS faculties who share a common passion for singing and choral music.

Every March, The NUSChoir stages its major concert, Varsity Voices, performing an extensive repertoire that features choral music, from traditional and classic to contemporary and new music. Audiences are also treated to pieces which have been prepared for overseas competitions. Aside from its annual concert, the choir also performs for local audiences outside NUS. In addition, the choir performs Christmas carols every December at numerous hotels, high society clubs and shopping centres.

The NUSChoir has gained a strong reputation as a youth choir overseas. It takes part in international competitions and has garnered awards, such as the Gold Award with Perfect Scores in Open Mixed and Jazz categories – Fiesta Choralis, Slovakia, 2010, Overall Champion with Perfect Scores – Grand Prix, Russia, 2008, among many others. In 2012, the choir emerged champions in three categories (Youth, Folk Song and Mixed Choirs) at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod  and were finalists in the Pavarotti Cup, competing for the title of 'Choir of the World'. Most recently, The NUSChoir clinched gold medals in Musica Sacra, Musica Contemporanea & Folklore categories at the 8th World Choir Games, 2014, held in Riga, Latvia. Their achievement placed them at the top 10 Choirs in all categories and the top Asian choir in the Folklore category.
