City Academy Encore Choir

City Academy Encore Choir

City Academy Encore Choir is a musical theatre choir meeting each week in London Bridge. It is open to all genders and any voice type who love to sing a broad range of repertoire from the West End and Broadway.

Rehearsals will allow like-minded singers to come together and enjoy original arrangements of their favourite show tunes in a fun and social 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 Encore Choir, 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, our team will inform you via email if you have been accepted.


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

WHEN: Rehearsals Tuesday evenings, 7pm-9pm

WHERE: St George the Martyr, Southwark 

REPERTOIRE: Musical Theatre 

Who Can Join?

City Academy Encore 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 contact info@city-academy.com for more information.

As a member of Encore, 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 Encore 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.

Choir Director

City Academy Encore is run by Aaron Nice who trained at Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, and is an experienced performer, Musical Director, and singing tutor.

As a singing teacher and choir leader, Aaron focuses on the fun side of singing, helping singers develop confidence and overcome nerves in a safe and supportive environment, whilst concentrating on correct vocal technique and expanding and exploring repertoire knowledge.

“I always assure my students that there is absolutely nothing to be nervous about. My job is to help you achieve your absolute best. The opportunity to be part of a choir and to learn and develop new skills whilst meeting new like-minded people is a wonderful thing!”
