President – Steve Rea
The role of the president can be seen as an honorary one, however I take my duties of bringing grapes and biscuits to all rehearsals very seriously! I’ve been a member of the choir since our inception back in 2011 and it’s been great to see how we’ve grown and developed musically. Outside of choir I work in the local NHS system, enjoy riding my bike and spending time with my family.
Music Coordinator – Jon Rayers
As Music Coordinator it’s my role to coordinate the choosing of music for each term, leading warm-ups and teaching the choir. I’ve been with Sing Clifton from the start, becoming Music Coordinator a few years ago. It’s always encouraging to see a song we’re learning come together, and as I’m often in front of the choir to teach/conduct I get to hear the various parts blending together right before my eyes(/ears). Outside of the choir, I work for Wessex Water and am involved in my local church.
Music Coordinator – Cameron Brown
As one half of the dream team of music coordinators, I am that guy who sends out many emails to the choir informing them what’s going on. I also look after the operational side, such as auditioning new members, putting together arrangements and scheduling what songs we’re learning. I really enjoy the musical and social aspects of the choir. Away from choir, I work as a property Surveyor and can often be found eating out or playing tennis in the Bristol leagues.
Treasurer – Miranda Hathaway
As treasurer it is my job to chase up payments and spend my evenings lounging in a bath full of money. Outside of choir I am a teacher and in my spare time I play badminton and like to be as busy as possible.
Social Secretary – Alex Howgego
By day, mild mannered Alex Howgego works as a humble software engineer for a small telecoms company in North Bristol… by night, he becomes ‘Tritone Substitution Man’, the superhero with the outsidest reharmonisations in all of the South West. Alex’s return to the role of Social Secretary has been described as, ‘one of the changes made by the choir in 2020’. In his spare time, he also enjoys swimming and taking his car to bits.
