In these weird times of social isolation I am deeply aware of the need to keep connections thriving.
I am running my two weekly choirs,
Hullabaloo Community Quire and Raise the Roof through the Zoom platform.
These sessions will be open to all, and an opportunity to see faces and to sing.
Anyone who has already participated in a choir session through Zoom will know their limitations. However I will try to be as creative as possible with the format and everyone will have a chance to sing like no one is listening (because no one will be!).
Please join the mailing lists for
Hullabaloo and Raise the Roof to get more info about the sessions.
And, should you want to support the creative work I do during these times, perhaps you might
buy me a coffee?
Bards and Ballads – a new Choral Theatre project in Brighton and Cambridge!

Vox Pop on Radio Reverb
I present a monthly show on
Radio Reverb. Sponsored by my choir Hullabaloo Quire, Vox Pop is a celebration of our glitteringly diverse and magnificent choral world, here in Brighton and Hove – and beyond!
The show explores why people sing, through the history, science, anthropology and philosophy of community song. There are special guests from the choral world, including other community choirs and fantastic a cappella music from all over the globe, live singing in the studio – and lots more!
Click here to hear the March episode featuring harmony-rich music with a choral bend from Imogen Heap & Imagined Village to Carl Orff as well as an interview with voice artist
Adrienne Thomas, and lots more!
Singing together is a great social and creative leveller, community singing is good for our mind, body and soul; it supports our respiration, releases endorphins and lowers cortisol, it strengthens bonds and forges new connections and it nurtures our creativity and opens us to rhythm, roots and resonance…singing is our birthright!
Ways you can work with me
I work with community choirs, singing groups, theatre groups and corporations, mainly in the field of a cappella harmony singing, but I also run workshops and courses in group composition, improvisation, singing with cross rhythms and percussion, stagecraft and group movement for simple performance technique.
