Freya - choir director (Brighton)

My background is actually as a theatre director and singer and this is my first official choir job but I saw The Choir With No Name was coming to Brighton and knew I had to try and be a part of it. I’m delighted to have this chance to build this new singing community in the heart of Brighton.

I’ve done a lot of work with community groups and I can never get over the power music has to help you connect with yourself, to cultivate happiness and reinforce community for all those who get to take part in it. I never feel more alive than when I am making music with others.

I’ve led vocal projects a lot in the past and love working in the space where singing, music and theatre meet. For me songs are about storytelling, and I love getting inside a song to get a greater perspective on the person it’s about and the story it’s communicating. I can’t wait to start making music with everyone and seeing the identity of the Brighton choir form.
