Since her early musical years, Tessa has been involved in numerous choirs and singing groups. Her love of vocal harmony is seen in both current projects, such as The Honeybirds, and past ones, such as Solaris.


It seems like a natural step to share the joy of group singing and lead others in creating music together. As well as Primary and Secondary School choirs, and the University of Huddersfield Pop Choir and A Cappella Group, Tessa also rehearses and leads a number of Community Choirs. 

For more details, please click on the links below:
