Why choirs Lizzy? I come from a big Irish family with three older singing sisters. Our dad, an Irish tenor, was a huge musical influence and taught us all to sing from a very young age and we were a family choir from as long as I can remember.
At 16 I joined the cast of ‘Starlight Express’ and have since appeared in ‘Les Miserables’, ‘Cats’, ‘Children Of Eden’ and ‘Joseph’ in the West End. I have played leading roles for the RSC and Royal National Theatre. I’ve toured Europe with the BBC and RTE Concert Orchestras, and have performed on ‘Friday Night Is Music Night’ and ‘Woman’s Hour’. I played the leading role of Anna in the UK tour of The King and I. I continue to write and perform my own material. I live in Waltham Forest with my partner Luke, two children and 2 cats!
At this point in my life, I wanted to stay still long enough to get to know my community and what a community they are!
