What is your earliest musical memory?
I came across a cassette tape(!) at my mum’s house last year. It has a recording of me and my brother age 4 and 6 respectively, singing Little Donkey and other Christmas songs. We recorded it to send to our cousins in Paris who sent something back. My mum obviously kept the recording for posterity!
What’s your favourite bit of music trivia?
I ran the Lea’s lockdown quiz during COVID so I should have lots. But really I just did some googling and looking at old Leas programmes to put together some entertaining questions!
What’s your music pet peeve?
The snobbiness of the classical music world. Music should be able to speak to all people. It can be frivolous and ‘corny’ or meaningful and moving but should be enjoyed for what it is.
