It was fantastic to have a visit from Francesca de Valence on Monday 30th July. Francesca spent the day workshopping selected secondary students as well as our three core Secondary Choirs, College Choir, Contemporary Vocal Ensemble and Man Choir. Francesca also performed one of her original songs at the Secondary Assembly.
Since 2008, Francesca has navigated her path as an independent artist with four releases winning quite a few songwriting awards including a Los Angeles Music Award and an Australian Songwriting Award, and supporting international touring artists including Belinda Carlisle and The Manhattan Transfer. In 2014 she founded the I Heart Songwriting Club, a nurturing platform for songwriters from around the world to write a song in one hour each week. Seven of Francesca’s songs from this songwriting club feature on her new album Own Self.
We are very thankful that Francesca found some time to be with us and look forward to her continuing support of St Andrew's Music!
