Our Team

Meet the C’est La Vie! community choir team…

Carol Shephard

Carol Shephard loves to sing and share gorgeous acapella harmonies, bass lines and rhythms. A hugely experienced teacher, performer and group facilitator, she sang with acapella performance bands Scarabella and Cowin’ Lush and co-led 4D community choir for 8 years. Carol is a member of the Natural Voice Network, a qualified yoga teacher and has been enthusiastically attending voice workshops for over 25 years. Passionately believing that everyone can benefit from singing, she is committed to creating accessible opportunities to share the joy of creating harmonies together.

Elizabeth Twitchett

Having always been involved in the arts, Elizabeth Twitchett grew up dancing and singing at the Grand Theatre and studied piano to Grade 7. Responsible for ‘Expressive Arts’ during her time as a primary school teacher, she launched a successful choir that ran for 10 years. Elizabeth sang with ‘Humbrella’ a natural voice community choir for some years before joining 4D community choir. As a member of the small acapella vocal harmony group ‘Eclectics’, she performs regularly throughout Swansea. Believing that singing is inherently therapeutic, she wants everyone to experience the joy of harmony singing.


Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our choir members say:

C’est la vie! What a great community choir! 50 voices in delicious harmony led by two wonderful teachers – what more could you want?! (and such fun too!)

Ravi Midha

A wonderfully welcoming and harmonious community choir! Led by two enthusiastic, talented and experienced choir leaders. Fun and uplifting… I cannot think of any better way to spend a Wednesday evening!

Singing with C’est la Vie! creates such a sense of wellbeing and is definitely good for the soul! I really treasure the laughter, conversations and singing we share each week
