Meet the Team
Events like this would not be possible without a lot of hard work.
These are the people behind the organisation of Usk Choral Festival.
A small band of dedicated volunteers, turning the seed of an idea into a full blown festival!
Drew is a musician, singer, composer, conductor and choir master - a man with a proven talent for all these things and a passion for encouraging all forms of singing. Enthusiasm, energy and a pretty good dollop of expertise.
Anne is hoping to bring her organisational skills & educational know-how to the task of getting the Usk Choral Festival off the ground. She quite enjoys singing too!
Barbara says music is in her blood! She loves performing and listening to many genres. She is looking forward to encouraging and promoting interest and audiences for this exciting new event.
Eleanor is a community choir leader, with a passionate belief that singing is good for you, from children through adults to dementia sufferers and their carers. Singing together is fun!
Caroline is a choral enthusiast and accompanist with a financial background who is thrilled to be involved in helping to establish the Usk Choral Festival.
Peter is a retired engineer and a keen amateur musician, playing trombone and bass guitar plus singing with a local choir. Peter hopes to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy music and get involved, learning to play or joining a choir for the pleasure and health benefits that music can bring.
Debs Hancock lives in Usk and has a passion for singing both as a jazz singer and choral music. She is delighted to be involved with The Usk Choral Festival, which brings so much music and involves so many singers, right here to the heart of Usk.
