I’m happy because I sing."

I am very much looking forward to meeting the members of CLC and embarking on a new era as Musical Director for the group. Preparations are well under way so that once regulations allow, we can ‘hit the ground running’ and I’m sure we can’t wait!
I have already learned a lot about the choir, its history and hopes for the future and I will do my utmost to maintain the high standards the choir have achieved in the past and to move us forward in a fresh and enjoyable way.
I hope that you will find me to be reliable and very well organised and that you will also very much enjoy singing in both rehearsals and concerts alike.
When we start back, we will be working on lots of new repertoire and also reviving some favourites which have been left unsung for a while. I have worked closely with the committee to get a good understanding of what repertoire choir members enjoy singing and which songs they feel they perform particularly well and I also look forward to bringing some new repertoire ideas to the group too.
Potential new members are always welcome to join us for a rehearsal after which, if they would like to join the group and there are vacancies, there will be a short, informal audition at a later date.
Watch this space for more information as we move towards a time when we can resume rehearsals and start singing again!
