LILLIAN BOUTTÉ our driving force and energy! Known as The Musical Ambassador of New Orleans, Lillian has for the past 25 years been capturing the hearts and ears of listeners from the Mississippi Delta to Bondi Beach performing her special brand of R&B, Jazz and Gospel. More recently she has been hosting singing workshops for children of all ages. Her main focus at the moment is to bring those workshops to children with special needs. She started that work right here with us! YOU can help her move it on.

HOLLY TIMMERMANS "I have been a member of ACC since it began. Singing with ACC is a well rounded activity that can be fun and moving, build good community links and foster enduring friendships. My day job is balancing energy as an Acupuncturist and Zero Balancer; as treasurer of ELS I balance the books which enables our outreach youth and community work. It's a way of giving back to a great little charity."


MARY GREEN "I am retired, and was a founder-member of the Alvechurch Community Choir. I helped to secure charitable status for ELS and am now a trustee and act as its secretary. I love singing, and am delighted to be with such a varied and enthusiastic group of people. I support the inclusive emphasis of ELS, and believe participation in music is of great benefit to everyone."





ELS Treasurer, Trustee & Committee Member

"I have been an Alvechurch Community Choirboy since the days when the choir met in the school hall. As a possessor of shattered lungs I find the vocal exercise therapeutic as well as the gatherings being socially supportive. I am fortunate in retirement to be able to attend regularly to banking, record keeping and end of year account preparation. My working life with HMRC has equipped me for this role and I welcome it as a leisure activity."
