As well as directing the New Forest Children’s and Chamber Choirs, Alison has also worked as Executive Producer / Director / Choreographer / Consultant for dance, theatre, TV & Film. As Musical Director and Conductor she brings a wealth of experience as well as fun and a winning way with the children.
The choir rehearses in New Milton every Monday afternoon for an hour, beginning at 4:45pm (term time only).
They compete in local, regional and national competitions and enjoy a local following at their concerts and charitable performances.
