Regular Companion Voices sessions, Jewish/sacred music consulting and teaching, one-off workshops.
Judith has been a professional musician for over thirty years and brings this experience to the many and varied elements of her work, which includes performing, teaching, composing, leading music in services and, more recently, writing dialogue and songs for the theatre.
Whether in the form of Companion Voices groups, theatre performances, concerts or workshops, her work is always aiming to foster connection, to bring comfort, to lift the spirit and to create a sense of community.
Judith adores learning and teaching songs from all over the world and led a choir at SOAS (the School of Oriental and African Studies in London) for seven years before going on to establish her North Watford Community Choir which became the Keep Connected Choir during lockdown. Though no longer meeting regularly, these do resurface – Brigadoon-like – into singing workshops from time to time that are open to all.
She specialises in Jewish music, composing her own settings for traditional texts and prayers and working within and outside this community to develop this music further.
Judith established Companion Voices in early 2014, to bring singers to the bedside of people who are dying. This is a main focus of her work at the moment, since the movement is growing with local groups developing around the country.
