Sonia Price - Musical Director

Sonia started as MD of the original research choir in 2009, and has continued to provide musical direction as the choir has formed its independent identity. As Principal Research Fellow at the Sidney De Haan Research Centre and Senior Lecturer in Nursing at Canterbury Christ Church University, she has a professional interest in singing for health and is actively involved in research in this area, most recently as musical director of a Singing for Better Breathing project across Lambeth and Southwark and a singing and COPD project in Medway. Sonia is also the MD for the Shorncliffe Military Wives Choir (Folkestone).

Phil Self - session facilitator. Phil works as a touring musician - Guitar/ Banjo/ Mandolin/ Vocals - local independent bands, and is the musical director of the Astor Community Choir. Phil and Sonia have worked together for many years and Phil was our Assistant MD until recently. We're sad to see him move on, but delighted that he will be popping back occasionally to take singing sessions in his own, inimitable style.

Ann is also the accompanist for the Military Wives Choir, The Dover Operatic and Dramatic Society and is a member of the Pharos Chamber Choir.
