Lucinda Allen, Teaching Fellow in Vocal Studies at ICMP, said:

I am incredibly proud of this group. They encompass everything ICMP offers in vocals; community, expertise and joy for singing."

James Rose, said: "I’m beyond excited for everyone to hear what Truetones have been up to this year, pushing boundaries and modelling authenticity together in their music. It's been a pleasure to be their musical director." 

Alongside the video performance and regular rehearsals, this year the group has performed at graduation ceremonies, recorded performances in the studio and reached the semi-finals for the Varsity Vocal Competition London. 

Previously, Truetones performed at the Music Declares Emergency event at the London Tate Modern ahead of the COP 26 Climate Conference in Glasgow.
