Joy Elizabeth Hastings

This is Joy’s first performance under her professional name. She performed with us in the summer of 2012 under her given name of Joy Ludlow.

Joy currently studies singing with John Hugh Thomas. During her time in Cardiff she has sung in ensembles such as the Cardiff University Chamber Choir and the BBC National Chorus of Wales, along with a number of other choirs in and around the city. She has organised a number of ensembles for concerts and events both in Cardiff and elsewhere, including her Early Music ensemble, The Philomela Singers. She also teaches and one of her pupils is Keith Underdown, a tenor in the choir. He is making his debut as a soloist tonight!

She specialises in Sacred Music, holding the prestigious RSCM St. Cecilia Award. Outside Cardiff she sings frequently with a number of choirs and as a soloist in her home county of Gloucestershire.
