A keen and accomplished singer, Fiona first became involved in running gospel choirs whilst a student at the University of Southampton. During her two-year tenure as President of Jazzmanix, the university’s 80-strong jazz and gospel choir, the ensemble won the Students’ Union Best Society Award an unprecedented two years running and reached the Finals of the Best Choir Category at the BBC Gospel Entertainment Music Awards 2003, losing out only to the London Community Gospel Choir.

Since graduating with both a first class honours degree in Music and Mathematics, and a Masters in Management Sciences, Fiona has worked for the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Academy of Music, Project Music Workshops, and is currently Senior Education Editor for a major music publisher. She has combined these roles with freelance work as a singer and choral director (and aerobics instructor!), working with children, teenagers and adults in a variety of settings.

She would be pleased to hear from anyone looking to book a gospel choir for their wedding or event, or to host a vibrant vocal project in their school or youth club, as well as anyone interested in joining this or another choir in the local area.

FUNDAMENTALLY GOSPEL - A community choir for Beckenham

Led by experienced musical director Fiona Bolton, FUNDAMENTALLY GOSPEL is a new and exciting choir for residents of Beckenham and the local area, providing them with the opportunity to sing as a community whilst having lots of fun! Open to any adult with a passion for singing, regardless of experience, and performing an uplifting mixture of pop, soul, gospel and world music, the choir will rehearse on a weekly basis in central Beckenham starting January 2010.

Membership is open to any adult who enjoys singing, regardless of ethnic origin or religious belief. There are no auditions and no experience is required. Members do not need to be able to read music as all songs are taught ‘by rote’ (using call and response). Opportunities for soloists will be given.
