Helen Yeomans is the founder and leader of Glorious Chorus, a Devon based choir. She writes and/or arranges all the songs that the choir sings. She is also choir leader for 3 other community choirs in her area. As an active member of the Natural Voice Practitioners Network she is also experienced in leading workshops all over the UK and overseas.
Helen returned to music after a 25 year absence when she had a yearning to sing. To her surprise, she found that not only could she sing but she could write songs too! Writing choral music was the ideal outlet for her creativity, which she could do around all her children, and it was only a matter of time before she formed her own choir.
Glorious Chorus soon gained a reputation for original songs and passionate performances, and for Helen it was like a dam bursting open. "When I finally have some time to myself, I find songs come pouring in from nowhere," says Helen. "It’s as if all lifes’ experiences and stories were meant to have expression in song, and I feel honoured to have the opportunity to bring them alive!"
Helen's song 'Awaken' was chosen as a featured performance piece at 2009's 'Sing For Water' annual fundraiser at London's South Bank, as part of the Mayor's Thames Festival. The songs chosen for this event were performed by choirs from around the country who come together - almost 1,000 singers - to sing for this fantastic charity. Helen's songs were also chosen to be performed at the Brighton Fringe Festival in 2008 and 2009.
Tea/coffee and a bottle of water for each participant will be provided.
Please bring something for a shared pot luck lunch.
Directions: Village Hall is just behind North Mundham School on B2166 between Runcton and Hunston, South of the A27 Chichester Bypass, and has its own car park.
