PODCAST: HULL IS THIS and Hull Freedom Chorus.

Clare is an Arts Development Officer at Hull City Council.

Claire said: “The beauty of singing in a choir is singing along with other people’s voices, is being surrounded by harmony. There’s a thing that happens when you reach a beautiful chord in a piece of music. There’s nothing quite like it.”
