My Story

At the heart of all my work is songwriting, singing and recording. Helen Chadwick Song Theatre creates group shows,  site-specific commissions, choral works for choirs and soloists, and solo shows.

Albums include House of Light and Fragments of Love. I love to set great poetry, and my albums are full of these songs.

As well as a river of songs, compositions also include music for the BBC, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal Court and the National Theatre.

Commissions include for the Royal Opera House, site-specific choral works for Greenwich and Salisbury Festivals, the RSC, the Getty Villa in Los Angeles, and community operas for English Touring Opera.

Helen Chadwick Song Theatre creates, concerts, site-specific work for choirs and soloists and song-theatre performances, some created with Steven Hoggett: TruthWar Correspondents and Dalston Songs. We have toured in the UK, Spain, Colombia, Finland and the Ukraine. Three solo song-theatre performances have toured in the UK, France, Denmark, Italy, Brazil and Argentina.

Founder with Thames Festival of the mass choir charity project Sing for Water which has raised well over a million pounds for WaterAid projects.
