Friends and visitors to the Royal Academy are warmly invited to attend a free choir performance, hosted by the Royal Academy staff choir in partnership with Music In Offices.

The event will be held in the wonderful Annenberg Courtyard, where visitors can see works by the artists John Maine RA and El Anatsui,
specially installed for the Summer Exhibition.
The Summer Exhibition opened on the 10 June, signalling the start of London's summer cultural season, so what better timing to host the choirs from the Royal Academy, Channel 4, Stewart's Law, Fremantle Media, Berwin Leighton Paisner, AON, Debenhams, L'Oreal, Hearst Magazines, Christie's and staff of the Guildhall School.
Following the individual choir performances, all of the choirs (and the audience) are invited to sing Verdi’s Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves.
Music in Offices will also launch the Office Choir of the Year Competition at the event. The Summer Exhibition
is open until 10pm on Friday.
