As musical director, Kaya has worked with a vast array of bands, community choirs and professional groups, including collaborating with BAFTA winning composer Bill Connor for Liverpool Capital of Culture and performances at the Royal Philharmonic Hall and at various festivals.
While living in Liverpool, Kaya was a member of the award-winning choir “Sense of Sound” and regularly took part in A Cappella performances such as the “Joni Mitchell Tribute Show” as part of the Liverpool A Cappella festival.
After becoming a lecturer at ACM in 2015, Kaya was asked to be Music Director for the The ACM Electron choir. The quirky choir is made up of ACM students and alumni from across the courses. Although they were only formed in September 2015, they have been a part of several performances, raised money for charity and have been recording with artists and their own material. In 2016, they participated in BBC6 Music’s Shaun Keaveny’s Christmas Single featuring Rod Stewart.
