Musical Director - Joy Windsor
Joy Windsor started the CYC in 2009 to cater for the children who were rapidly outgrowing the church's children's choir. Joy sings soprano in the church choir, but has also sung in Cantique, The Cantabile Singers and, locally in the ladies' barbershop group The Dulcet Tones. More recently she has developed her voice for solo work and has sung at Alton's Last Night of the Proms, with The Holybourne Singers as the soprano soloist in Haydn's Creation, as well as at various wedding services. Joy teaches at Amery Hill School in Alton, and, in the rest of her spare time, enjoys spending time with her family and grandson Oscar.
