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. 

I am Co-Director of Voices Weaving, a song co-creation project for community choirs and vocal collectives. In 2024, Voices Weaving features collaborations between project Co-Director and composer, Michael Betteridge, with: 

Hull Freedom Chorus & Cassandra Parkin

Rochdale Youth Choir & Liz Mytton

Let's Sing 26 & Princess Arinola

The Mere Singers & Emma Purshouse

Derbyshire Community Male Voice Choir & SAF-S2E

Electric Pink Voices & mandla

Asylum Link Community Choir & Amina Atiq

Bradford Friendship Choir & Ali Al-Jamri 

Music and poetry films, created in collaboration with filmmaker Luca Rudlin and movement director Ruth Jones, will be available to watch in 2025, alongside learning resources for all eight co-created songs, for choirs worldwide to sing and perform. Supported using public funding from Arts Council England. 

In 2023,  I curated and produced the Wrenathon, a 2-week festival which culminated in a Vocal Marathon that featured ten community choirs performing across City of London churches, in celebration of the architecture of Christopher Wren as part of Wren300 for the Diocese of London.  


In 2022, I received Arts Council England funding for research and development of song co-creation project - Covid Song Cycle [working title] - now Voices Weaving ; produced projects with singers from across the UK for performances of About Us for UNBOXED and 59 Productions; and produced Hope for Justice, a interdisciplinary performance by hundreds of school children about climate emergency, written by composer ESKA, poet Cecilia Knapp and choreographer Sarah Golding, for Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance as part of We Are Lewisham (Borough of Culture).

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.
