      Claire has performed extensively as a soloist in London and Manchester.

      She has also enjoyed a long collaboration with composer Shane Cullinan and premiered his contemporary oratorio “The Pieta” at St Paul’s Covent Garden, with actress Frances Barber in the role of the Narrator.

      She has also been a long-standing member of London’s prestigious Joyful Company of Singers and you may still occasionally catch Claire singing with Manchester Chamber Choir on BBC Radio 4’s Daily Service and Sunday Worship.

      Claire continues to perform as a soloist with the award-winning orchestra Tonic Fold. She appears on Tonic Fold’s recent album “The Violent Language of Portraits” alongside soul legend David McAlmont and actress Kathy Burke.

      Tina, who is a graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music, has performed at the world-famous Glyndebourne Festival Opera and at the Royal Albert Hall in the Last Night of the Proms.

      Following these successes, she went on to perform as a recitalist across Europe and the USA.

      Later, Tina set up her own successful music education programme, Music and Voices, which she and her team deliver in schools across Greater Manchester. As part of this, she takes opera into schools where she guides the children as they write, produce and then perform their own opera.

      Tina still finds time to continue her own singing career, regularly performing as a soloist in recitals throughout the North West.
