We have been based for 10 years in North London and are committed to giving tailored vocal and musical coaching to our singers who are enjoying inspiring rehearsals and receiving home support for the practice of our classical, romantic music + sacred music repertoire.

We rehearse every Wednesday (school term), 7-9pm at Alexandra Park School in Muswell Hill.
