The City Academy Collective are an exciting contemporary choir that meet in central London. The group sings a wide variety of musical styles including gospel, soul, pop, jazz and musical theatre.
The choir is open to both men and women of any voice type, and is a great way of meeting like-minded singers in a fun and friendly environment.
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.
If you’re interested in joining Collective, you must attend a taster session. 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.
Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings from 7:15 pm - 9:15 pm in Bloomsbury Baptist Church, Central London.
In weekly rehearsals, you will develop in the following areas:
Soul, Jazz, Musical Theatre
The City Academy Collective is open to anyone with some previous singing experience. The choir is not suitable for absolute beginners.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
As a member of the Collective, 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 hard work, practise at home and commitment in order for it to be a success, so we do ask that you attend as many classes as you can.
Here you'll find recent repertoire from the City Academy Collective choir. Enjoy!
City Academy Collective 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.

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.
