Our choir leader is Eleanor Mooney.
Eleanor has loved singing her whole life, at school, local am-dram groups and adding harmony with the best of them at folk gigs/festivals from a very young age.
Leading Caedmon Choir is one of Eleanor’s favourite things and she says that she continues to learn so much from us even after 10+ years! She arranges most of the songs we sing, taking requests from the choir, bringing her own ideas and loves to try something new and a bit unexpected.
She is a musician, community musician and project manager working at Sage Gateshead and as a freelancer working solo and with numerous other regional creative organisations such as Blue Cabin CIC and Chalk.
Eleanor sings and plays ukulele as part of her band FIKA, performing original material written with bandmate Joe Johnston, and gigging whenever they can.
When Eleanor isn’t singing or working, she loves hanging out with her family, being outdoors, reading, sewing and should the opportunity arise, napping!
