We are a chamber choir offering Blue Mountains residents and visitors regular concerts of choral music, both accompanied and a cappella.
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. Other former Directors have included Elizabeth Swain, Matthew Breaden and Lucy McAlary.  Since December 2011, renowned Australian composer, conductor and arranger Paul Terracini has directed the choir.
Rehearsals
We rehearse on Tuesday evenings at Wentworth Falls during school terms and welcome any interested singers to attend a free trial rehearsal. For further information, contact Brenda See by phone on 4757 3656, or email us from our CONTACT page.
