City Academy Choirs

The City Academy choirs are some of the most exciting vocal ensembles in London, and welcome singers to join them throughout the year. These groups are perfect if you want to sing with friends, or get involved in a brand-new social activity.

We have six choirs: three mixed-repertoire choirs (Voices, Singers and Vox), a pop and rock choir (Amplified), a musical theatre choir (Encore) and a ladies-only mixed-repertoire choir (Songbirds). All choirs rehearse weekly and perform throughout the year.

If you're interested in joining a choir you must attend a taster class. This an informal audition session where you will take part in a choir rehearsal, enabling you to meet group and give the Musical Director a chance to hear your voice and assess your suitability.

How to Join a Choir

In order to join one of our choirs, you must first book a taster. Our Choir Taster Classes are informal audition sessions where you will join a choir rehearsal, enabling you to meet the group and give the MD an opportunity to hear your voice and assess your suitability. 

Please do not book on to a choir without first attending a taster.
