Gill Fourie

Author and Music Teacher – A Curious Tale

Gill studied music at Newcastle upon Tyne University and has worked in various primary schools in Lancashire before joining Blackburn Cathedral as Head of Music Outreach in 2009. She has overseen the growth of the outreach project, SingTogether, from just a handful of schools to participation by over 100 on a regular basis. The project is a dynamic partnership between schools and the Outreach team and is so exciting, rewarding and can be life changing for all that take part.  

Gill has also worked at the National Theatre and has taken choirs to the BBC Proms (War Horse), the London Olympics and RNCM for superb performances.
