Vocal department

The vocal department is run by Simon Sundermann with the help of 13 licensed Singing teachers who mainly teach in the Secondary Schools of Bromley. Young voices can be trained to sing Classical, Jazz, Pop & Show repertoire and there are opportunities for them to be involved in concerts, workshops and masterclasses at BYMT throughout the year.

There are opportunities for anyone aged 6 – 106 to join a choir at BYMT. With the emphasis placed on vocal techniques, members learn how to sing well and healthily. Concerts are held in a range of locations each year, and there is the opportunity annually to perform large scale works with a BYMT orchestra.

As well as Choirs we stage a production each year with our Music Theatre groups; previous shows include 'Sweeney Todd', 'Honk!' and 'The Cat in the Hat'.

We are also committed to singing in schools and Jessica Rabin, our Advisory Choral Teacher provides training and arranges local festivals as well as coaching massed primary school choirs for the BYMT Schools Prom.
