City Academy Vox Choir

City Academy Vox Choir

The City Academy Vox Choir is an exciting new contemporary choir based in East London. The group sings a wide variety of musical styles from pop, indie, gospel, soul and blues.

The choir is open to all genders and any voice type, and is a great way of meeting like-minded singers in a fun and sociable 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 Vox, 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, you'll hear from our team.

VOX CHOIR Rehearsals

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



Pop, Indie, Gospel, Soul and Blues



Join Vox

WHEN: Rehearsals Monday evenings, 7pm-9pm

WHERE: St John's Hoxton 



The City Academy Vox Choir is open to singers with any voice type who have 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 nfo@city-academy.com for more information.

Like all of our choirs, as a member of the Vox Choir, 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.


City Academy Vox 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.
