Hi, my name’s Anthony and I am incredibly excited to be bringing a little bit of the West End to the North each week with our Musical Theatre choir!
I’ve been performing for over 15 years, a career which has taken me all over the world and given me the chance to perform in some amazing locations like Hyde Park & Wembley stadium, to name a couple, whilst also working alongside and collaborating with some incredible West End talent!
I’m incredibly passionate about musical theatre and group singing - so what better way to bring both together and share that with like-minded people than with a musical theatre choir! I believe singing should be for all and a choir is the most amazing place to help empower you to discover and express your voice, allowing you to share in creating wonderful music whilst making new friends, creating communities and having amazing performance opportunities.
Everyone is welcome, regardless of experience - so if you’re a secret shower singer, complete beginner or a seasoned pro with dreams of the West End, there is a place for everyone at our choirs and it’s this mix of experiences and backgrounds that create something truly unique and special.
I can’t wait to share this with you and I hope to sing with you soon!

Hi! I'm Jennifer, and I'm so excited to be leading the Stockport Musical Theatre choir for Sing Space.
I am an Actor, Singer and Musician originally from and now currently based in the Peak District.
Since graduating I have worked for multiple companies teaching singing and music to groups and individuals. I also work as an actor and singer and was most recently in Buxton Opera House's annual pantomime Sleeping Beauty.
After trying the 'London Dream' I very quickly realised the North is the place to be and have since built a lovely career teaching singing and guitar to both adults and children. I also run my own baby music classes and will often be seen gigging around Stockport and the surrounding areas at weekends.
I am so excited to be joining the Sing Space team and leading the wonderful Stockport Musical Theatre Choir!
"I can’t think of a better opportunity than Sing Space Musical Theatre Choir to join."

TERM FEES (3 OPTIONS):
By purchasing your seat you agree to the Terms & Conditions*
*TERMS & CONDITIONS
1. Our Choir fees are available to purchase termly, in full OR in a 3 instalment payment plan. The instalments will be charged as follows: First payment on the day of sign up - then 2 further payments on the same date for 2 consecutive months. There will be no further charge after the 3rd instalment is paid. 2. When you choose the payment plan option all 3 payments are required to be paid irrespective of attendance, or if you decide to leave the term part way through. This is not a pay as you go plan, but a way for you to pay the full term fee more comfortably if needed. 3. Our Instalment payment plan is available each term for a limited time, once the payment plan option has been removed from the website you will be required to pay the pro rata fee in full if you wish to join. ** 4. Even though we believe YOU’LL LOVE IT, we understand that circumstances may mean you change your mind. We offer a 14 Day cooling off period from the day of purchase. Where payments are made in advance before the term starts, we will extend this gesture to include 7 days from the FIRST session of term. Sessions that have been attended, have already occurred after purchase or fall on the date of notification will be charged. 5. After this 7 day period has ended, the fees are non refundable and the option to sell your seat to someone else who is not an existing choir member will be offered. We will also consider deferring your place to the next term if your request has been made by the 3rd week of term. 6. If your purchase has been made after a drop in session - the 14 days is reflective from your drop in session date. 7. We are understanding towards people's individual circumstances and will support you as best we can if you are having difficulty with payments. Please always reach out to us if you find you are having any financial difficulty. If after notification or 3 communication attempts the fees continue to go unpaid we have the right to revoke your membership or attempt to take payment on an alternative payment method on file. 8. If for any reason you cannot attend a session you will have the opportunity to catch up with these sessions online via your choir's Facebook page - if you know you cannot attend sessions in advance of the term - the full fee is still required. 9. Performance opportunities will require you to purchase a Sing Space T-Shirt. 10. Any Government mandated lockdown or restriction of any kind may warrant us to move to online sessions. No refund will be given as sessions will still happen via live streaming. 11. In cases where your Choir Leader may be ill - our priority is always to still have the session go ahead and your Choir Leader will provide cover for this session. If they are unable to find suitable cover for the session, time will be given to make up for the session missed. This may mean extended sessions throughout the rest of term or a week added to the end of term. You will not be refunded for this session in the first instance unless an alternative option cannot be given. 12. Bank Holidays - for choirs who may be affected by Bank Holidays your Choir leader will decide ahead of term if the session will still go ahead on that day or moved to another day in the week. You will not be compensated if you cannot attend on bank holiday or the alternative day.
WHAT MAKES OUR CHOIRS SPECIAL
The Sing Space musical theatre choirs offer singers at all levels the opportunity to experience the joy of singing original musical theatre arrangements with like-minded musical theatre lovers. No audition needed for the regional choirs.
Led by qualified vocal coaches, you will benefit from expert and well-executed vocal technique instruction and learn how to use and develop your voice safely and effectively.
This is a musical theatre choir - we only sing songs from musical theatre. We are not an amateur dramatic society, so there’s no dancing or costumes.
The Sing Space musical theatre choirs offer performance opportunities throughout the year, ranging from local venues to iconic spaces such as Cadogan Hall in London. There are also opportunities to sing solos and/or in small groups, in a safe and supportive environment.
We recognise that members learn in different ways and come from a diverse range of musical backgrounds. With that in mind, we offer a multi-channel learning experience. You will learn new pieces each week with the guidance of your choir leader and be provided with sheet music to follow. You can support your learning between choir sessions using your vocal guide tracks and/or YouTube lyric/audio guide videos.
We know life can get busy and you won’t always be able to make every choir session. Each session is live-streamed through your choir’s Facebook group for you to watch in real-time or later at your own convenience, so no-one will feel they are falling behind.
Group singing offers mental health and wellbeing benefits, such as reducing stress and supporting social connection. The Sing Space choirs are a supportive and inclusive community.
