Josh Robinson is delighted to have set up the company Encore Choirs, alongside his partner Gemma Ford and working with one of his closest friends, Joe Peall.
Josh has been working in professional choirs over the last two years, building a great rapport with the members for the company he was working for. Since the company came to an end after its long run, he decided it was the right time to take his experience to a new level, by setting up his very own choirs that are suitable for all voice types, and to give a new experience to group singing. He is delighted that many of his previous members have followed him and joined Encore Choirs for a new and fresh experience. Josh will be leading both choirs as well as overseeing the running of the company and is so thankful to his partner, Gemma, who has has helped him to set up this company, and he wants to thank her for being there for him always. Josh also wants to pay a massive thanks to Ryan Stevens for his wonderful artwork and website, head on over to StevensSignage for more of his creations and to Joe Peall for his music expertise.
Josh is an infectiously enthusiastic voice teacher & vocal coach. His passion for voice began when singing in his secondary school choir, wanting to know why and how we make the sounds that we do.
