Calne Choral ended the Spring concert with mixed feelings. Whilst the concert itself was a success, the choir knew that it was the last time that Helen Heaton
would play with us as our accompanist. Our best wishes go with her, as her musical career changes direction and develops.
Our new accompanist is Alta Ridgway and we are very pleased to welcome her. This is how she describes herself and the experience she brings to Calne Choral. We
look forward to working with her.
“Originally from South Africa, I came to the UK for a gap year after completing my Music degree at the University of Pretoria. I settled in Calne to teach Music at
St Mary’s and continued to do so until 2016. Nowadays I am a busy mum and wife, running Ridgway Music Studio from my home in Cherhill, teaching piano, accompanying and performing when the occasion
arises. Singing is also a passion and you will find me in nurseries and in the community singing with under-fives as an Early Years Music Specialist, delivering Colourstrings sessions. I am thrilled
to be a part of Calne Choral Society and am excited to be working, together with Phil and the choir, on some great choral music.”
