Founded in 2013 by singer songwriter Tanya Walker, the Alive & Kickin’ Community Choir Brecon is a choir for people of all backgrounds and singing abilities.
Thanks to Tanya’s enthusiasm and boundless energy, what started as a small choir with only a hand-full of members has now grown to a well-established and popular choir performing at many events in Brecon and beyond.
We rehearse every Monday evening at The Muse, Glamorgan Street, Brecon. 7-9pm.
Tanya is a professional choir leader, classical musician and singer-songwriter with over 38 years of experience. She leads three choirs in Wales and also works as a vocal and performance coach.
In 2004 Tanya won the PRS/ FOPP Best Singer-Songwriter award in the South West & Wales and represented the PRS in Beijing, in the creation of new work with stars from China and Hong Kong and leading showcase events to major record labels such as Warner Brothers.
Tanya was granted an award by the Arts Council of Wales in 2012 to create an hour long multi-disciplinary new musical work 'Breaking the Fearwall', which was performed at Brecon Cathedral to a sell-out audience.
