12. Janet Dann – An Englishman Needs Time

My professional background is in theatre and education, with a particular interest in voice work. I am a member of Trianon Music Group (choir) and Dorian Singers (Felixstowe). To these and many other local groups I contribute readings and narration in their concert programmes. I run poetry courses (currently suspended!) for Ipswich Institute and give regular solo recitals of reading programmes for societies and charities.
