Great Britain, Ireland, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, and French speaking Switzerland Concert Manager
Alison's first taste of music was at the tender age of 4 years when she appeared on stage in a production of the light opera Orpheus in the Underworld by Offenbach. From there her love affair with music and the theatre ensured a lifetime of involvement in the Arts. At 7 years she decided to learn the clarinet, having been rather unsuccessful at the violin, and then progressed to alto sax in the local band. It turned out that she was a somewhat better singer than a saxophonist. Some fun time was spent traveling the world fronting a dance band. This led her to her second great love affair – travel. After ten years on the road traveling in Europe, the Middle East and Latin American, she joined a specialist concert tour company based in London and for the last 10 years has been arranging and promoting concerts throughout Europe for amateur musicians and singers with her own company Concertina.
Alison's love of performing continues with one of London's major choruses. The choir performs regularly in the premier London concert venues and travels all over Europe. They have performed together in many extraordinary and diverse venues, from the great palaces of St Petersburg to the imitate churches of rural France. Alison says, "Each performance has given us a lifetime of unforgettable memories. Perhaps this is why I am able to appreciate the excitement of going "on tour" and why we, as musicians and singers, benefit so much from that time we spend together taking our music to an unknown audience across the continents."
