Tara has sung in classical choirs for many years and is currently a soprano in the London Oriana Choir. A few years ago, inspired by the Oriana’s five-year project to promote women composers, she began doing some choral composition of her own. Since then she has been busy writing, studying and encouraging other choir members to write music. Her work has been performed in the US and the UK by the Oriana, Vox Urbane, Choral Arts Initiative, the Brown University Chorus, the New Amsterdam Singers and BRACE New Music Choir, and she has been commissioned to write for the New York City Master Chorale. By day she is Director of Programmes at Pembroke House, a community center in London, where she lives with her partner and two children.
