Secretary & Music Librarian
Kathryn sang for many years as a child with the church choir. She progressed to a folk group in secondary school (all paisley frocks and guitars) and then performed some Gilbert &Sullivan (with flowing locks and frilly dresses). She later sang with Portsmouth Choral Union before joining Spinnaker Chorus on a Come & Sing course. Kathryn came along on her own but found the group really friendly. She originally joined the bass to avoid too many scary high notes! After a time with London City Singers, performing in many wonderful venues, Kathryn returned to Spinnaker. When the Chorus learnt Ain’t No Mountain she was instantly converted to joining the Baritones. Singing Motown had, it transpires, always been her ambition.

Bookings Officer/ Diversity & Inclusion Representative
Nicolette started singing in choirs from a young age and was inspired by performing at the prestigious Wigmore Hall and The Royal Albert Hall. She was surrounded by music at home and learnt to play the piano and clarinet. She was invited to take part in a Spinnaker Advent Acapella programme by a friend in 2018 and quickly became hooked on the passion and conviction of performing with the Chorus. Her favourite song from the repertoire is When I Fall In Love. “It’s such a beautiful song,” she says, “and so emotionally satisfying to sing.” When Nicolette is not singing she likes to paint, garden, play the piano, read, travel, go to the theatre and concerts and enjoy precious time with her family and friends.

Kath lived for a time on the Isle of Wight and enjoyed singing and performing with the Solent Gilbert & Sullivan and the Cowes Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Societies in a variety of chorus and principal roles. Back on the mainland she joined the Spinnaker Advent A Capella programme in 2018 and got hooked on barbershop singing. Her favourite Spinnaker repertoire song isCome In From The Rain. “I fell in love with it when the Chorus sang it so beautifully at the Christmas show”, she says, “and I couldn’t wait to learn it.” Kath’s a very busy lady. When she’s not working or singing she spends time crafting including silk and glass painting, glass engraving and quilling. She also enjoys wildlife photography and playing video games.
