OUR MUSICAL DIRECTOR NOVA EVANS
Nova became our MD in 2015 after being a member
of Mountain Harmony for 18 years. She enjoys the camaraderie and the effect music has on her and the chorus members and says that when a chord 'locks' perfectly, it gives her the shivers. She enjoys continuing to learn the barbershop style of singing and has fun doing it, performing with chorus and making a musical impact on the community.
Nova's love for music has been with her since a very young age, singing in her school & church choirs along with music theatre groups and Eisteddfodau over the years. Nova gained her B.Ed.Hons degree in English & Performing Arts and was a music co-ordinator in primary education, directing the choir and the school band at school concerts and music events there . She was even part of a soul band in the late 1960's!
Nova will sadly be stepping down from the role of MD later this year so we're looking for a new MD to fill those small but powerful pixie boots. We’re looking for someone who will inspire and direct us to excellence in a mutually supportive culture, to contribute and share in our achievements as we work towards improving our award-winning performances. If this sounds like you, please contact us via email@example.com.
Meet our members....
Heather is our membership secretary – a post she’s held for 3 years now & prior to that was our secretary and our chairperson. She joined in 2008 after learning of Mountain Harmony through 2 members as she had sung in her youth choir and later in a folk group until, in her own words, ‘life got in the way’. Once her son had grown up and she stopped teaching, Heather was keen to continue with her singing but didn’t want anything boring and thought MH sounded like fun. She says it’s lived up to her expectations and enjoys the good singing and good friends now as well.
Heather enjoys all genres of music and loves anything which grabs her attention, from opera to rock and all things in between. She loves a good quality performance and the way a song can evoke all sorts of emotions. She is looking forward to continuing her musical journey with Mountain Harmony while enjoying the friendship & support of other chorus members. No doubt she will continue for many years on our committee too. She says it’s because she likes to know what’s going on but we think it’s because she makes organising us all look so easy!!
