ACADEMY SINGERS
 
We are a chamber choir offering Blue Mountains residents and visitors regular concerts of choral music, a cappella or accompanied by local professional musicians.  We perform both sacred and secular music in a wide range of styles, from early music to the best contemporary composers, including works by Australian composers.

Collaborations with Penrith City ChoirPenrith Symphony Orchestra and Warrimoo Chorale enable us to perform large scale works at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre, and we host annual participatory events for all interested singers, such as Vocal Workshops and Singing Days.  In addition to our regular concerts, we have sung for Church services such as Evensong, Christmas and Easter services, as well as Yulefest celebrations and Community Festivals.  We act as mentors to the Blue Mountains Youth Choir.
 
Academy Singers was established in 1996 by distinguished musician and composer Gavin Tipping, then Head of Music at Blue Mountains Grammar School and founder of the Blue Mountains Grammar Music Academy, the inspiration for the choice of our name.  Since December 2011, renowned Australian composer, conductor and arranger Paul Terracini has directed the choir.
 
Rehearsals:  We rehearse on Thursday evenings at Wentworth Falls during school terms and welcome any interested singers to attend a free trial rehearsal. For further information, contact Judy Hudson on (02)4784 2461, or email us from our CONTACT page.
