I hope 2020 is treating you kindly 🙂 And sorry it’s been so long since I’ve been in touch! This blog’s got upcoming events in, but first, to catch up..
I led 1,000 singers for ‘Wrexham Singing Streets’ in September. We sang ‘Let it Be’ among other massed songs and the sun shone and the wind blew, and I must remember to comb my hair at the back! You can also see the fabulous signing choir wearing black at the front, who signed all the songs that day 🙂
I met some lovely people at ‘From Discord to Harmony’ singing workshops I did in Kent and Accrington in October and I had a wonderful time hosting the fabulous Helen Yeomans in Manchester for a workshop here in November.
December saw my Wrexham One World Community Choir host a fab Xmassy Fundraising evening with the local choir for homeless and marginalised people ‘Wrexham One Love’. We deffo put the FUN into
