Like you, I've been singing since before I could speak
I really believe in the power of collective group singing to transcend cultural boundaries, cultivate joy and connect us all. So, over the years, I've produced countless projects which do just that. Working with people from all walks of life - those who say they can't sing, children, young people, at-risk adults including people who are homeless, refugees and asylum seekers.
For four years I ran Southbank Centre's community singing program, Voicelab, and programmed their annual Chorus Festival. In 2019, I curated a series of choirs to sing beneath the iconic Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree in New York.
So far in 2022, I've produced projects with singers from across the UK for performances of About Us for UNBOXED and 59 Productions, as well as with hundreds of school children in Lewisham for Hope for Justice, a project for Trinity Laban Conservertoire of Music and Dance for We Are Lewisham (Borough of Culture).
I've received Arts Council England funding for a co-creation project - Covid Song Cycle [working title] - a collaboration with communitiy choirs, spoken word artists and composer Michael Betteridge, with filmmaker Luca Rudlin.
In June 2023, I'm curating and producing the Wrenathon, a choral event celebrating the architecture of Christopher Wren as part of Wren300 with the Diocese of London.
