Pop A Cappella Choir
Voiceworks Studio pop choir performs a cappella pop, rock, jazz, classical, musical theatre and barbershop

professional live band for selected concert performances.
Our beautiful premises boasts a small (80 - 100 seat) theatre. This provides an ideal rehearsal space and
creates many exciting performance opportunities for our singers.
There is much commercial studio and performance work for solo and ensemble singers who are trained to
sing at sight. Learning how to sing at sight may sound difficult and boring, but Voiceworks Studio makes it fun,
using exercises such as advertising jingles and great 2, 3 and 4 part harmony extracts from your favourite
Musicianship class equips singers with the theoretical skills required to become an educated and professional

We offer a wide range of examinations, with syllabi and awarding bodies chosen to suit the individual students’
strengths and requirements. These include: Trinity Guild Hall, Royal Irish Academy of Music, Associated Board
