Additional information

Sarah has been leading singing workshops and choirs since 1988. She has led groups with absolute beginners, disabled people, young people on probation, and in schools, hospices, hospitals and community settings, and has worked in Nicaragua, Australia, France and Spain. She is particularly passionate about working with disadvantaged communities, and believes that singing together in harmony is a fantastic way of bringing people together in supportive community.

Sarah currently runs two open community choirs , one in Newport city and one in rural Erwood village. She runs occasional  ‘Music and Memories’ sessions for people with dementia and one-off day singing or song-writing sessions.  She leads the Natural Voice leader training alongside Frankie Armstrong and regular music leader training with Community Music Wales.

Sarah is a song-writer and regular performer in styles ranging from folk to Baroque classical music. She sings with the duo Blameless Hussies and with her quartet, The Quiet Ranters. The songs she writes and sings are witty and thoughtful, bringing together the personal and the political.

 

My choirs

Erwood Community Chorus
Description

Started in 2016, this group is open to anyone. Members include village residents and people from Rhayader, Llandrindod and Hay on Wye.  We learn songs from around the world, all by ear, and occasionally perform locally for village events and Christmas concerts.  Members of the group recently took part in a Community Music Wales composition project called Ffordd Sain (Way of Sound), writing songs, poems, prose and creating videos inspired by the A470, Wales trunk road, and the River Wye, which also runs through the village.
