A contemporary choir for adults in Essex

I am a manager of a general medical practice and a director of a Primary Healthcare provider company.


I have a husband and two children that I am very proud of and have spent many years supporting them in their activities. From cricket matches in our so-called summer, football matches in the wind and rain to hot sweaty swimming galas around the country. Once they'd grown up (the children that is) I thought it was time to do something just for me,


I joined Southend Vox in 2013 having not sung in a choir since my school days. I've always loved singing either in my bedroom with the hairbrush or in the shower. I didn't know anyone else in a choir I just knew I wanted to sing.


On my first night I was asked if I was a Soprano or an Alto. I didn't have a clue, I didn't think I could get the high notes though, so I was sat with the Altos and that's where I still sing.


The first time I performed with Southend Vox was really nerve wracking but once we had finished I just wanted to do it all over again. Everyone was and still is very supportive of each other. I really enjoy performing and still get nervous but I am proud to have sung at some amazing venues. I enjoy rehearsing each week and performing with a wonderful group I can now call my friends.


I took on the role of Treasurer when our committee first formed. I didn't have any experience in running a choir, however I do know a bit about looking after money, but more importantly I am passionate about Southend Vox.


Tina Packman, Treasurer
