Beverley has always loved singing in choirs. Trained in the Anglican choral tradition, as a youngster her choral commitments took her to cathedrals around the country and abroad, from York Minster to Westminster Abbey and even the Royal Albert Hall. During this time, she gained Distinction in Grade 8 Voice, alongside Distinctions in both Grade 7 clarinet and piano.
On completion of her BA Hons in Music, where she gained a love of Early Music she joined the renowned choir Ex Cathedra, and sang in the London sixteen voice choir, Cantores.
Beverley then trained as a classroom Music teacher, teaching all ages, from Reception up to A-Level. She also had the opportunity to lead on large music education projects, working alongside Make Some Noise and the Manchester Camerata.
However, her love of directing choirs became established whilst working as a singing teacher and conductor with Staffordshire Performing Arts. Here, she trained numerous choirs; and co-ordinated and conducted various massed children’s choirs at large-scale venues in and around the county, including Lichfield Cathedral; and most memorably at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall.
Beverley is so excited about joining the Rock Choir family. Singing with others and getting others singing is what inspires her the most, so she cannot wait to get started!
