meet Virginia..


My name is Virginia

My part of London South East

My earliest musical memory of London is seeing Sarah Brightman in the Phantom of the Opera aged 6

The moment I realised I could sing was singing by myself in front of people for the first time at my dance school aged 4: I sang ‘I’m a little teapot’

When I am not at a Snapshot Songs rehearsal you will mostly find me singing, writing and performing my own songs. Working as a Creative Arts Psychotherapist to support children’s creative and emotional expression.

A song that changes the way I’m feeling no matter where I am when it comes on is Cry to Me’ by Solomon Burke

If I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life it would be a toss up between Joni Mitchell ‘All I Want’ and Tom Waits ‘Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis’…I think today Tom tips the scale in his favour for his perfect slice of human heart ache.

A typical thing you might hear me say is “It is what it is”

One word I would use to describe the Snapshot Songs choir is “rich”
