About Me

Shannel Courtney
I have had the privilege of leading Mosaic, a Nelson-based community choir, since 2003. We are currently around 50 voices and sing exclusively world music with a strong repertoire of African songs. I am self-taught, having had no formal musical theory or conductor training, but have drawn on my experience as a marimba player in the Golden Bay-based Zimbabwean marimba band, Mweya. Over the last 5 years I have increasingly been doing my own arrangements.
