Join Collective

We'll never ask you to audition or sing solo. If you love to sing, you can come and join us, it’s that easy! We want all of our members to feel comfortable, we’ll help you find your voice as part of our friendly and supportive group.

Rehearsals are held at Sage Gateshead. The number of places we can offer each term is limited so it is very important that you attend the rehearsals if you are given a place.

We’re looking for members who are;

  • passionate about singing
  • committed to a weekly programme of rehearsals
  • willing to work hard in rehearsals and in your own time
  • aged 16-30
  • can adhere to our code of conduct
