The performers

Earthly Voices Community Choir

The choir is an a cappella choir of 45 voices, led by professional conductor, arranger and accompanist, Emily Leather. Having performed at many venues including Hampton Court Palace, they have raised lots of money for many local causes over the last 10 years. 

The programme will include songs from a broad range of genres; from Bruckner to Labi Siffre, encompassing world music, gospel, classical and pop. 

Treble Clef Choir

The choir consists of over 50 ladies who have previously sung at the Winchester and Rochester Cathedrals. Musical Director, Tim Woodford, began his musical career as a chorister at St George’s Chapel, Windsor and he has conducted and performed on piano and organ at many prestigious venues.

The choir will be accompanied on piano by the talented Hannah Stanley and will perform a varied programme of classical works, musical theatre and contemporary pieces.

Gabriella Pearce

Among numerous performances, Gabriella has been fortunate to have performed vocal solos in some amazing venues – classical in the Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta in Pistoia and at an open air concert at the Villa Garzoni in Collodi, Italy.

Luke Tye

Luke appeared in the Freedom Game Opera, written by Hannah Conway and Sir Richard Stilgoe which was performed last year at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the Magna Carta celebrations.
