City Academy Amplified

City Academy Amplified

City Academy Amplified Choir is our Rock & Indie choir perfect for those who love singing contemporary repertoire in a fun, upbeat setting.

Amplified perform twice a year, in Summer and Winter and welcome new members throughout the year.

If you’re interested in joining, simply sign up to a taster session and join us for a regular rehearsal. You'll have the opportunity to meet our musical director, Liam Connery, and experience the choir first-hand. There is no audition required and you don't need to be able to read music. Musical Director Liam will take you through the current repertoire and if you both feel the pace of learning is manageable you’ll be invited to join.

For the first session, there is nothing to prepare and no pressure at all. Following the taster, our team will be in touch to advise on next steps.


In weekly rehearsals, you will develop in the following areas:

  • Develop and refine vocal technique and dynamic choral performance
  • Explore a variety of song genres and increase your repertoire knowledge
  • Improve range, pitch and listening skills
  • Learn about the vocal anatomy and build confidence

Mixed, all genders welcome!

Suitable for

those that have completed a Level 2 Singing course


Monthly membership with weekly rehearsals

Who Can Join?

City Academy Amplified is open to anyone with some previous singing experience. The choir is not suitable for absolute beginners. If you do not have the experience required, we recommend you complete a Beginners Singing and Improvers Singing course before progressing to the choir.

We are always looking for new members, so if you have a love of performing and are looking to develop your vocal technique, please book a taster or contact info@city-academy.com for more information.

As a member of Amplified, you don’t have to commit to every rehearsal evening, as we appreciate people have busy lives. However, putting on a choir show takes a lot of commitment, hard work, and practice at home for it to be a success, so we do ask that you attend as many classes as you can.


City Academy Amplified perform in showcases and larger scale productions each year at prestigious music venues across London. Additional performances for the choir may also include community projects and live music events.
