unique, killer arrangements & smooth moves
Like we said, Amplify are not a choir. Amplify are so much more than just a choir. We perform unique, killer arrangements (written by our very own Musical Director) and add some smooth moves for good measure.
We favour a wide variety of music from Frank Sinatra to Rita Ora and everything in between.
Our rehearsals sometimes feature cake and selfies but mainly feel-good singing. We’re just one big happy family, really!
If you fancy joining us you must be at least 12 years of age and be a really good singer that can handle super-duper harmonies. You’ll have to audition so we can check out your skills but don’t worry, we’re very lovely and not at all scary! Interested?...register for an audition.
If you're not 12 yet, take heart, all is not lost! Why not join our Mini Amps?! You just need to be between 8 and 12 years old and love singing as much as we do. There's no audition, just let us know you'd like to join in the fun! In fact, we're so sure you'll love it that the first week's on us!
