She found a whole new direction in her life after joining a community choir and she hasn’t been ill since! In this video she talks about her story and the healing power of singing.
Helen returned to music after a 25 year absence, when she had a yearning to sing. To her surprise, she found that not only could she sing but she could also write songs. Writing choral music was the ideal outlet for her creativity, which she could do around her children, and it was only a matter of time before she formed her own choir. Thus, Glorious Chorus was born.
Green Lane Films have filmed the choir on a number of occasions. Click here for their amazing rendition of Jerusalem.
Glorious Chorus soon gained a reputation for passionate and polished performances which has taken the choir around the country, including performances at Glastonbury festival, The Isle Of Wight Jazz Festival and Port Eliot Festival. Her song ‘Saved’ won the gospel category prize at the UK Songwriting Contest in 2015. She is now in demand for commissioned work.
What sets Helen apart is her ability to bring out the best in the singers – from the professional to the absolute beginner. She infuses groups with her passion and humour which is a joy to witness. She is able to touch her singers with the emotional core of the beautiful songs she has writes.
Helen Yeomans also runs workshops around the UK and abroad teaching her award-winning compositions. She also runs Thula Mama, which teaches songs to mothers and babies, and has franchised groups around the UK.
