About Ruth White (Musical Director)
“I just love singing and a song is never far from my lips. I also love passing the joy of singing on to others” says Singing Aloud director Ruth White. Ruth believes singing is an uplifting experience that can be shared by all and can transport you from the grind of the normal day to a truly wonderful place, leaving you revived. But it doesn’t end there…. there are also new friends to meet. Ruth was inspired to lead singing groups after attending the Unicorn ‘Voice Camp’ in 2000 (check out the Unicorn Camps website) which left her with “music ringing in my ears from every sound I heard – even the car wheels had become musical -until I joined the traffic on the M25 that is – but it left me changed”
She then went on to take a course in choir leadership, shortly after which she dipped her toe in the water by gathering a few colleagues together with the aim of performing at a charity event in Luton. It was a great success and it inspired her further to set up a permanent group in Hitchin and then Royston and beyond.
She feels it’s important to open yourself up to living the life you want to live so that the things you love are an integral part of your life and not just snatched moments attached to a burgeoning routine.”I love what I do, and get a real thrill from watching everyone shed their worries and come alive when they sing”.
