We facilitate and develop in-house choirs, giving staff and community groups an opportunity to get together. We have developed successful in-house choirs for Allen & Overy, Freshfields & LOCOG
If you already have an established choir, we can help you to build upon this by sending in one of our musical directors on a regular or irregular basis, administrating your rehearsals and providing creative input where necessary. If you don’t have an existing choir, we can help you start one; we can provide you with experienced musical directors to ensure that singing becomes an important part of your firm’s extra-curricular activities, something we’ve done for a number of our City-based clients.
Our growing choir, CMS Chorale, is based in Canary Wharf and currently performs three main concerts a year at Christmas, Easter and during the Summer. Rehearsals take place once a week in a relaxed and fun atmosphere under the guidance of our experienced conductor Andrew Sackett.
These concerts are a great way for CMS instrumental and vocal students to gain valuable experience by performing a rehearsed solo or duet in front of a live audience.
“It really did feel magical last night and goes to show what you can do with limited time when a group really starts to bond. I feel we are very lucky to have a choir at work (and our orchestra too) and to be able to develop singing and performance skills through the various events we get involved in. We are especially lucky to have such a fun, down to earth and inspirational Musical Director – it’s all your support and encouragement that makes us who we are on stage Howard! We’re looking forward to our next musical adventure.”
“It shows that you can also achieve things of real merit outside your area of expertise and develop further as a person in areas more than just your work. It is immensely satisfying” CMS student
