Inspiring audiences with passionate performances.
Critically acclaimed choir and instrumental ensemble Armonico Consort entertains audiences across the country with its high quality concerts, outstanding recordings and innovative projects. Drawing on the passions of forward-thinking founder and artistic director Christopher Monks, our professional singers and musicians perform inspiring programmes, spanning the Baroque to the present day.
Central to Armonico Consort is our education programme AC Academy, which reaches 15,000 children a year across the UK through its in-school Choir Creation Scheme and after-school AC Academy Choirs in partnership with music hubs nationwide.
The legacy of a choir that lasts forever
AC Academy is Armonico Consort’s extensive and imaginative singing education programme, which reaches 15,000 young people a year offering life-changing experiences and first-class performance opportunities through fun and engaging singing projects.
The charity develops and supports choirs and choir leaders across the UK through its in-school Choir Creation Scheme, after school AC Academy Choirs and SEN projects, in partnership with music hubs nationwide and in collaboration with venues such as the Royal Albert Hall.
By 2020, we aim to create 300 children’s choirs and 300 choir leaders leaving a singing legacy across the country.
Armonico's workplace choir scheme
There’s never been a better time to invest in the health and happiness of your workforce.
There is strong scientific evidence that singing helps reduce stress and improves mental and physical well-being. Our research shows it boosts productivity too.
Voice Squad is Armonico Consort’s workplace choir scheme which brings employees from across the business together in a social and fun activity to help create a happier, more productive, workforce.
