Meet… Gillian


Name: Gillian

Section: Soprano

Any official choir function? I do my turn on the tea rota. ️

Joined in: January 2014

Daylight job: Art Teacher

Why did you join a choir? I love choral singing

What do you enjoy most about singing with us? When all those perfect harmonies come together and create choral magic, can’t beat it! Also James’ very knowledgeable direction and brilliant analogies as well as some cheese jokes I hadn’t already heard!

What is the most exciting piece you’ve ever sung? Loved the Poulenc Gloria, great dynamics and lovely crunchy harmonies!

What’s the hardest piece you’ve ever sung? Bach “Lobet den Herrn alle Heiden”…too many notes!!

Which piece is your guilty pleasure? Haven’t discovered it yet

Do you also play an instrument and if so, which? The guitar, strummy, singalongy style

What other music do you enjoy? Everything from Chopin to Nine Inch Nails, excluding hip hop, Russell Watson and Cliff Richards.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not singing? Cooking and painting (landscapes, not walls)

Tea break! What’s your favourite biscuit? Dark choccy digestive every time!

What’s your choir super-power? Occasionally being invisible

Tell us something we don’t know about you. When I was an art student the Clash stayed in my flat in Hyndland Rd while on busking tour in Glasgow

What would you say to anyone thinking of joining our choir? Most enjoyable 2 hours of my week, great fun, great challenge and greatly rewarding.
