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.
A beautiful article about Companion Voices by Susan Reuben has just been published in the Jewish Chronicle.
Companion Voices Watford has received some funding from Watford Council and part of this is going towards making a recording of some of our songs, due to be released later this year. Meanwhile, our London group is changing venues for the rest of the year and a new group in Bristol is on the cards for September. Please get in touch if you’d like details.
Wonderful film director Lucy Kaye has made a beautiful film of the Singing for the Mind group I am lucky enough to be singing leader for. That film – called Memory Songs, winner of a Pears Short Film Fund Award – was premiered at JW3 on Sunday 13th November. It is being released at festivals for the first year, and can’t be shared on the net til then. But she’s very generously also made us a promo, which we’re just delighted with. Feedback welcome! Thank you Lucy 🙂
Two of my songs – Oseh Shalom and Angel Blessing/I Walk In Beauty were selected for the Shalshelet Festival of new Jewish liturgical music in December 2016 in Philadelphia and have been published in the songbook of the event (which you can purchase from their website).
If you’re looking for lovely new songs to learn or teach, I recommend this – a collection of songs taught over the last few years at Unicorn Voice Camp…
