An emphasis on joy, companionship, connection and inspiration runs throughout Judith’s work. Whether performing or teaching, composing or leading music in services, she always brings her own deep experience of the power and potential in singing and her passion to share these with others.
Her conviction that no-one should be denied these gifts means that her groups are open, welcoming and accepting. They focus on the simple enjoyment of learning songs and co-creating sounds, being together, celebrating and supporting, creating community.
Happy new year! May it be one of joy and good health, growth and inventiveness for all of us…
After over seven very special years as director of SOAS World Music Choir, I have now handed over to the wonderful Camilo Menjura. Also, the JW3 ‘Sing!’ group, meeting from 1 to 2pm on Wednesdays – originally set up at the LJCC – is now in the very capable hands of Rachel Weston and Katrina Damigos. Please see the relevant pages for more info.
In November, two of my songs – Oseh Shalom and Angel Blessing/I Walk In Beauty – were selected for the Shalshelet Festival of new Jewish liturgical music. The Festival will be in Autumn 2016 in Philadelphia and songs will appear on a CD and in a songbook after the event.
And – giving you lots of notice:
1) I’ve just been offered a place to teach at Unicorn Voice Camp 2016 and Sacred Arts Camp 2016! More details in the new year…
2) Polina Shepherd and I are planning our second joint workshop and performance on Sunday 10th April 2016 in Brighton – please do keep the date and we’ll give you all the info later.
