Iris Warren

We are extremely fortunate to have Iris Warren as our M.D. She is very special to all of us, and regularly weaves her mystical Celtic spells by producing the most magical Welsh choral sounds out of our group of thirty plus troublesome but friendly males.

Iris has taught music at all levels with choral singing particularly by children, and fortunately for us she is a teacher of immense tolerance, patience and ability.

She tells me that she loves her ‘older boys’ choir, though we are not sure if this is in spite of, or because of the behavioural characteristics she recognises from s(k)chool.

She has been heard to complain that of all her children’s choirs . . . “Brighton Welsh Male Voice is the most troublesome!”.
