Who are we?

 My name is Daniel (or Daniele, but you have to say it right!), I am originally from Italy and I am one of the Sing! leaders. I have been involved in a few choirs in the past 10 years, both as a member and as part of the organising committee.  I joined Sing! when it was born and I’ve been in it ever since. I am a software engineer by day, but once a week I love doing something different by singing and teaching songs to the choir — and having a good laugh while doing so of course! I do not have any formal musical training, but Sing! is the kind of community where I was given the opportunity to try my hand at something new without feeling the pressure of getting it right. It looks like it worked!

I’m Naomi.  I am one of the founding leaders of Sing! I’ve been singing in choirs since I was nine years old, and also play the piano (although I get really scared playing in public!) My responsibilities in the choir are musical: I am part of the team which chooses the songs, finds teachers and conductors, organises the weekly rehearsals, plans the concert, and runs teaching & conducting workshops.  Outside of choir I enjoy walking, singing in an a cappella group, and drinking tea!

 

Tizzy sings tenor and has been part of the Sing! Leadership team since the choir started in 2012. She enjoys sharing her passion for music with all ages, both with our choir members and the children she works with in schools. She loves finding any excuse to have a choir social and have a boogie along to our songs and loves enthusing people to get involved with our Sing! community. 🙂

I’m Bethany.  I’m one of the founders of Sing! and am really happy to still be one of its musical directors many years on! I love arranging songs for the choir, teaching and conducting, and always get a buzz when a song comes together and I can see the delight on everyone’s faces! Inspired in part by my experience with Sing!, I’ve since qualified as a music therapist and now work with children with special needs and adults in palliative care, sharing the joy of music with those who need it most

 

My name is Sarah.  I am currently a local primary school teacher and since I was small I’ve absolutely loved singing. I joined ‘Sing’ when I moved to Cambridge 3 years ago.  I was in a choir before, so I knew that when I relocated to Cambridge, I wanted to be in a local choir. Since I joined ‘Sing’ I have made so many new friends. We’ve learnt such catchy songs and the weekends away helped me meet so many new people that I hadn’t even spoken to before. I’m on the music team, as I wanted a challenge and to pursue something outside of my career. It’s not been easy learning all the songs by ear and even teaching other people songs, but it’s so rewarding.

  Hi, I’m Bekki, I’ve been a member of Sing! since we started in 2012. I’m the Secretary along with Julie, which means you will get an email from one of us every week telling you everything you need to know about what is happening.

 

 

 

 I’m Shona, and I joined Sing! in January 2015. I’d been looking for a choir for a while and I’m so glad I found Sing!  It’s an evening when I can be me for a few hours, have a laugh and enjoy singing a wonderful variety of songs. It’s a wonderful community and I’ve learnt lots of new things, and not just about music. I wanted to give something back so I’m currently trying to keep our digital presence up to date and relevant.  Outside of choir I’m mum to 2 boys, and i enjoy walking our Samoyed dog, and being crafty!

I’m Anna and I’m having great fun on the Sing! Committee as part of the music team.  I absolutely love being part of the choir.  Singing and working together to make beautiful music is a very special experience and one I am very proud to be part of.  On the music team I am involved in choosing the songs we sing, arranging warm ups and helping at rehearsals. I have particularly enjoyed part teaching and conducting this term. Outside of choir I am a secondary teacher by trade and currently work as an Education Officer while I bring up my three little girls, all of whom love to sing!
