A contemporary choir for adults in Essex

I began singing at the age of 11, and sang all the way through school in two choirs, Southend Young Singers and Southend High School for Girls choir

In that time I performed at Royal Festival Hall, Houses of Parliament, St. Martins-in-the-field and Millennium Dome during the Millennium year in a commissioned piece.

 

I then studied Joint Music/Drama degree at Queen's University Belfast, where performance was my key module throughout the three years.  I gained a first in singing performance and a 2:1 overall.  During University, I sung in the auditioned Chamber Choir - Queen's Consort and the main Queens Choir of over 300 singers.  I was a soloist with a big band at a prestigious concert in Whitla Hall in Belfast, I sang a live set on BBC Radio Northern Ireland and was involved in all sorts of weird and wonderful performances throughout my degree.

 

Once graduating I undertook lessons with the Head of Vocal Studies at Guildhall School of Music and Drama (Robin Bowman), as well as singing at more weddings and funerals than I care to remember.  I stopped pursuing professional singing as I took on my first role within TV.

 

I took a break from singing whilst I worked in TV, and then I found Southend Vox.  Since joining Vox in 2010, I've sung at the Palace Theatre, Union Chapel and The Royal Albert Hall (something off my bucket list), I've got married, I've sung at a Vox wedding and I've created two one-off choirs - one at work and one for my best friends wedding, but most importantly I've grown some amazing friendships and get to do what I love every single week.  How awesome is that?
