We're thrilled to welcome Naveen Arles to the Choir with No Name family... as our latest choir director!
Nav is going to be the director of the North London choir, taking over from Marie in September. It's our original Choir with No Name, based in King's Cross, and this is the end of an era for our founder Marie (who's stepping back from directing in order to focus on growing the organisation).
Originally from Edinburgh, London-based Nav is a dynamic, accomplished and incredibly popular choral director who already runs several choirs in London - including the London Youth Gospel Choir. He teaches music in schools, and co-founded Sanctuary Voices, an arts project for refugees and asylum seekers. And as if that wasn't enough, Nav recently joined the teaching faculty at the Mary Ward Centre and has been running community outreach singing groups in community centres around Camden.
We can't wait to see him in action come September!!
