Sally is a choir leader with a dynamic and infectious style, who delights in passing on the repertoire she loves both to the singers and the audience.
She is director of two choirs which meet on a weekly basis. Each choir has a unique sound brought about by the broad sphere of music Sally has worked in and the passion she has for unusual and special harmonies. She sources an exhilaratingly varied repertoire and draws the best out of a diverse group of singers. Both choirs give regular performances in and around London and occasionally abroad.
The Wing-It Singers meet in Hackney and sing songs from many world traditions but specialize in Georgian, Balkan and Eastern European songs.
The Cecil Sharp House Choir sings mainly Sally’s own arrangements of songs from the British Isles plus a few from other folk traditions.
Sally is also the musical director of Broomdasher, a group of sixteen mixed voices who sing English Folk songs and stirring anthems from across Europe, as well as more obscure songs of love, loss, work and play.
Sally also runs one-off workshops and regularly ‘guest teaches’ at other people’s choirs and singing festivals. (Raise the Roof, World of Song, Winchester Community Choir, Alton Community Choir, Sing Fest etc)
Sally believes passionately that it is everyone’s birthright to sing and that it is never too late to join a choir and to find or develop your voice.
