BlewSing, established in 2011,
began as a Gospel Choir under the energetic and enthusiastic direction of Lizzie Butler.
In 2013 when Mark Stanley took up the baton the Choir began to sing a wider variety of genres, from Gospel and Traditional American to Musical Theatre and Popular songs. Clive Grant, our current musical director, has continued in this vein for the last five years.
