Our Musical Director

About Us LizLiz Powers studied music at Dartington College of Arts, and Ethnomusicology at the School of Oriental and African Studies, before going on to qualify as a music teacher at Roehampton University. She studied Choral Conducting with the Association of British Choral Directors.

Liz founded and directed choirs at both Dartington and SOAS, and ran the Gospel and World Music Choir Course at The Mary Ward Centre in Bloomsbury. She now runs four Thula Mama Mother & Baby harmony singing groups in West Yorkshire, leads a number of other small choirs, and sings with the award-winning White Rosettes.

Liz’s approach gently raises the standard of our a cappella singing, and prepares us for polished performances, while making rehearsals enjoyable and uplifting. She can’t get enough of that tingly magic that happens when people sing together in harmony, and encourages everyone, and anyone, to come along and get some for themselves.

Liz has been directing the Manchester Community Choir since 2008.
