About Roxane

About Roxane

In her ‘choir-life-before-covid’ Roxane led a plethora of regular singing groups, in and around Shrewsbury, Oswestry and Machynlleth.

Go to the Diary page for details of what choirs used to happen (and may one day happen again!)

Throughout 2020 Roxane was able to run 59 open-air singing events (YES FIFTY-NINE) with plenty of social distancing, fresh air…..and some beautiful locations too…...go to ALFESCOSINGING to see what’s happening in 2021 and here to see snippets of the outdoor choirs in 2020

New for 2021: Zoom Singing courses

Throughout early 2021 Roxane ran many and various online (via zoom) singing sessions. If you would like me to run a zoom session for your choir, please contact me. My sessions are upbeat and energising and we all have a good sing, move about quite alot and enjoy singing along to rivers and woods and immersive films of the natural world. An example is here . Go to my ZOOM SINGING COURSE PAGE for details of sessions I am running online.

One highlight of the year is Sing for Water, which Roxane has been co-directing since 2006. This massed choir performs as part of Thames Festival every September to raise money for Water Aid. In 2020, the concert went online and singers around the country  managed to continue fundraising…..we raised an impressive £27,494 for WaterAid to cintinue its life saving work with people who do not even have access to safe water.

A bit of background info about Roxane in her SingingLife BC (Before Covid)...

Roxane has been running community choirs and a variety of singing groups since 1998. The nature or location of the group may vary from year to year, but the fundamental mission remains the same: to make singing in harmony accessible and fun.

Over the years she has been involved in a wide variety of singing projects. She has set up and run teenage singing groups, worked extensively with singing groups in drug and alcohol rehab, led singing for people with Parkinson’s,worked in schools for the Welsh National Opera community projects, and brought the joy of singing to many different people.

She loves her garden and allottment, she loves singing with her friends and she also loves getting excited and making things happen!
