Claire Stogden
Musical Director

Claire first began leading a choir when invited to cover for the choir master at her church when she was just 14. Since then, she has been involved in a range of musical projects, voluntary and professional, and has been running Four Hills Music with Martyn since its inception in 2007. 

Currently her conducting covers community singing projects and church choirs around North Enfield and Barnet.  She is also a qualified counsellor, and as such has the privilege of witnessing the power of healing through music and singing.  She very much regards her musical and therapeutic works as complementary.

As a vocal soloist and as an alto section member, she has performed with a variety of groups, including Enfield Choral Society, North London Brass, English Jazz Orchestra and Adoramus Choir.  She has performed in a number of venues, including the Watford Coliseum, Hertford Theatre and St Paul's Cathedral, and further afield touring Italy, France and Turkey.
