Why sing?

We sing because we love singing. We sing to express joy, celebration, even grief, without worrying whether our voice is ‘good enough’. Singing raises our confidence and improves our health – and is a great way of making new friends.

Our musical director is Ana Hayrabedian, who has been with the choir since 1997.

Ana has many years’ experience of singing. She began her singing career in choral societies and was trained in classical singing. She then went on to discover community choirs and the natural voice network, where she found a community of singers that embraces everyone.

As a natural voice practitioner, she believes that singing is our birthright and that everyone’s voice is unique to themselves.
