City Academy Chamber - Taster

City Academy Chamber - Taster

City Academy Chamber - Taster

The City Academy Chamber is an SATB mixed vocal harmony group with a repertoire covering a range of choral works and styles, with a focus on a cappella singing.

Headed by tutor Rachel Maby, members of City Academy Chamber receive expert guidance in a nurturing and supportive atmosphere. It’s a fantastic opportunity to improve your singing skills at the same time as making new friends and have fun.

If you’re interested in joining Chamber, you must attend a taster class. During the taster you will attend a regular rehearsal and meet the rest of the group. The MD will also take the opportunity to hear you sing as well as assess your suitability for the group. Following the taster, the Head of Singing will inform you via email if you have been accepted. The purpose of the session is so that you can meet the Musical Director, as well as get an idea of what membership entails and the level of singing involved.

The choir provides a great way of meeting like-minded singers in a fun and friendly environment, whilst also providing an opportunity to improve your sight-singing skills and tackle complex harmonic works in a variety of musical styles, from classical to contemporary. Membership also provides the opportunity to perform at a number of events throughout the year. This includes the choir’s own dedicated concerts as well as performing as guests at some of City Academy’s other events.

WHO CAN JOIN?

The City Academy Chamber is open to singers of any voice type who have at least some previous choral singing experience and music theory knowledge.  The choir is not suitable for absolute beginners or singers who do not read music.

Prospective members will have an informal audition at their taster with the MD, where they will be required to individually sing their respective voice part in a piece of repertoire learnt in the rehearsal, which will be in at least four part harmony.

If you do not have the experience required, we recommend you complete a Beginners Singing and Level 2 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 contact info@city-academy.com for more information.

No Venue

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
