She is unfailingly innovative, resourceful, versatile and fun every Saturday morning. The Singers all adore her. She has a fantastic talent and we take full advantage.”

“Friendly, funny and full of singing and joy! I love being a member of The Kenningtones Choir. The sessions are fast-paced, vocally (and sometimes mentally) challenging, but always full of humour and laughter.
Cerys, our leader, is fun and supportive and we sing her innovative arrangements of popular songs from a range of genres. The Kenningtones Choir is a great place to be on a Wednesday evening.”
Jo Salter, Kenningtones member since 2011.
“With sing for joy I learnt how to find my voice and overcome my nerves.
Singing with Sing for Joy is fun, educational and a good form of therapy.”
Mark – member of Sing for Joy
“My voice had become very weak to the extent that it was often reduced to a barely audible squeak. I was prescribed voice therapy which made me aware that without long term voice exercises, I would lose the gains I had made. I joined Sing for Joy. For me singing is a wonderful voice maintenance tool: thoroughly enjoyable, therapeutic and socially constructive.”
Peter – member of Sing for Joy
