I enjoy getting people together to sing.
I run virtual choirs, online and in person choral workshops, an online singing school, performance projects for amateur soloists, and an international research group.
Whatever I do, you are welcome to join me.

My pride and joy and greatest commitment: SING THE NORTH – a virtual choir created during the pandemic to bring choristers together to sing safely, to showcase Canadian choral music, and to transport people out of isolation into the vast open spaces that Canadians call home. All are welcome, wherever you live in the world.
The Pacific Song Collective has been running projects for amateur singers and pianist on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands Archipelago for the past 10 years. Follow the image link to hear some of the stunning concerts our musicians have put on and be encouraged in your own music-making.
The SING THE NORTH virtual choir tour bus, which takes STN singers on our virtual choir field trips. It has taken us on a live tour of the Cape Dorset Inuit Artists Collective in the Arctic, to see the Polar Bears in Churchill Manitoba, and we have even been virtual whale watching. These field trips are fun, but also work a special magic on our timing and sympathy for other singers while making our virtual choir videos. Join us!
The French Song Project, which is the latest song project for amateur pianists and singers run by the Pacific Song Collective, is currently on hold owing to the pandemic. Click through to our website to hear the wonderful songs of Pauline Viardot and Gabriel Faure, which we will be singing when we can all come together safely again.
One World Baroque is a special virtual baroque orchestra and chorus which I founded together with superstar countertenor Daniel Taylor in September 2020 in response to the pandemic. Our singers work on stunning baroque choral works and collaborate with some of the most famous singers and players working today. If you fancy singing Bach and want to have Charles Daniels and Emma Kirkby in your living room, this is the choir for you!
