Then audition for ACM Electron – the choir with a difference!
On Monday 21st September, auditions will be held at 6:15pm in Room 14. Book your audition place via myACM here!
This will not be a traditional choir, although we may do some Gospel Songs, but if Glee and Pitch Perfect is all you know about harmony singing, you might be surprised at how many exciting ways you can harmonise in a vocal group.
Here’s what we want to achieve, together, with ACM Electron.
The Musical Director and newest member of the ACM Vocal Department, Kaya Herstad-Carney, appeared on International and National TV, festivals, launches and recordings either as part of or conducting choirs, including notable performances with Seal and Bon Jovi on the Royal Variety Show and backing Ringo Starr at the opening of Liverpool Capital of Culture. For the Liverpool Capital of Culture celebrations she also worked with BAFTA winning composer Bill Connor creating a piece with community singers. She first heard of ACM when Sense of Sound Singers reached the finals of Last Choir Standing alongside the choir from ACM.
In her own practice as a singer and songwriter with band Science of the Lamps, Kaya regularly performs in UK and abroad and have supported artists such as Dub Pistols, Marina & The Diamond, Brett Andersson (Suede), Sandi Thom and The Wombats.
