Our people

Quorum singers would of course be nowhere without huge support and organisation from some very important people.

Our ever-enthusiastic musical director, Marianna Freeman, keeps the energy high during rehearsals, guiding the choir through brand new, as well as well-trodden, pieces. In 2018, our accompanist and pianist, Malcom, retired after 10 years supporting Quorum. We have been very happy to welcome Margaret as our new pianist since then, bringing with her patience, enthusiasm, and putting us all to shame with how quickly she learns the music for so many songs.

Behind the scenes, though in no way less important, Rebecca, Charlie and Manda keep the choir in check, ensuring we have concerts to work towards, locations to rehearse, and a reputation to uphold!

Ros is our membership secretary, the face of the choir for new members, and she’ll be in contact with anyone who wants to find out more about joining us.

We also have James, Wilma and Alison B on our Committee, helping to support the running of the choir, publicising events, and adding their voices to any decision making.

After many years at the helm, our Chair, Michael Hollick, stood down in 2019, with Manda taking on the role, briefly covered by Katherine. We hope to make the role of Chairperson less intimidating by keeping to shorter terms “in office”. With a strong, committed Committee behind us, the role hopefully continues to be less and less daunting.
