Sue Houghton (Chair 2019)


I think I have been singing all my life!  My first recollection is  singing Doh a deer on the stage at Butlins. I then progressed to singing on the exit steps of the local cinema! My choral experience spans both CBSO Chorus as a founder member and City Choir.  I have been with Choral Union now for a relatively short time and although it is a smaller choir, it is perfectly formed! I qualified as a music teacher in 1976 and have been teaching ever since. I retired from full time working in 2013 but I now teach part time in a local primary school and I hope to carry on for many more years!

Under the baton of Colin and the lightning fast fingers of Darren, Choral Union continues to develop and there has been inspirational and memorable singing in recent concerts. Our current aim is to recruit more singers to enable the choir to grow and develop further. We have some exciting concerts ahead and I am proud to be chair of such a great group of singers.
