Learn to sing & harmonise to house music!
Our singing tuition uses foundations incorporating traditional practices as well as Qi Gong, NLP and Life Coaching to help progress both vocal skills and the psychology needed for dynamic performances.
This choir sings House in a House Music style! We use 3-part harmonies; Soprano, Alto & Tenor and blend this into a contemporary ‘dance’ sound. We are building a strong repertoire with UK Dance Music producers which ensures plenty of live and recorded performances around London & UK. Our rehearsal sessions can involve working on up to 3 or 4 songs at a time and there is plenty of opportunity for our singers to develop lead roles for each track.
“House Music + Diversity = Unity”
London House Cat Choir members pride themselves on representing London as a diverse cultural melting pot and enjoy being the creators of an inclusive environment. Staying true to the historical nature of House Music, this choir actively embraces group diversity and sees this as a foundation for breaking down social and economic barriers of race, class and everything in between.
The weekly singing practice and live performances have been noted to boost a state of emotional and mental wellbeing whilst enhancing personal achievement. LHCC members come from all reaches of London and together, co-create a strong sense of belonging which is visible and audible in all performances
“What the Choir Says”
I’ve wanted to join a choir for many years now; and the London House Cats Choir provided the perfect opportunity to indulge my love of singing and house music, in the company of some now very good friends. The choir provides a great release from the stresses and strains of every day life and I always feel incredibly energised after a rehearsal. The choir members are an enthusiastic, supportive, talented bunch of people and Kayo knows exactly how to bring out the best in all of us. I’d heartily recommend it to anyone looking to advance in contemporary singing, and I’m very proud of our progression over the last year. We are a force to be reckoned with!
