Kate Firth – Bramhall Community Choir

12 Sep 2014

Kate Firth, the new Musical Director of Bramhall Community Choir gives us an insight into her appointment at the Choir.

Kate said “I feel extremely lucky to have lived in Bramhall most of my life. I live with my 9 year old daughter, Olivia and a mad Westie, Lily.

I have been singing for over 40 years, 20 of those have been in acappella singing. I sang in 2 championship ladies barbershop choruses (Cheshire Chord Company and Heartbeat) and Eu4ia, a multi award winning quartet.

My quartet ‘Eu4ia‘ was formed in 2000 and won the national championship in 2001. Over the next 10 years we went on to win 4 more times and win the European championships. We competed 4 times in the States (Detroit, Hawaii, Las Vegas and Seattle) and reached an unprecedented 12th place in the world (at that time by a British quartet). We were fortunate to have been coached by some of the best singing and presentation coaches from Europe and the States, building a large ‘tool box’ of skills.

I have coached many choruses and quartets over the last 20 years. I specialise in healthy singing techniques and regularly teach singing, one to one or in small groups.

I am very excited to be taking over the chorus from Neil. He is an amazing director and a talented musician, I just hope I can fill such large shoes!”
