Our performances are intimate, immersive, modern, thought- provoking, passionate.

Alongside offering vital performance experience for talented singers from all backgrounds, we offer each singer dedicated time with a professional vocal coach and Musical Director as part of rehearsal time. Mixing new emerging singers with more established professionals allows an exchange of experience and broadens the age range of the group, allowing for a greater diversity of repertoire and voice.
We have supported the careers of singers who have graduated from some of the finest international music colleges alongside those who have taken alternative paths into opera, and those currently working in the professional music world.
