About us

Frances Cooper, soprano and Joanna Nicholson, clarinet, performing as Turning the Elements, present evolving programmes of spirited and lyrical music for this intimate combination of voice and woodwind.  We combine our own arrangements of traditional song with sublime 20th century song.  At the heart of many of our performances are two suites of song written especially for us in 2015.
