What began as a hobby, having studied piano from an early age, the self taught composer’s works depict themes of current and historical interest in musical form. Sigaud’s style is neo-classical reminiscent of the romantic period and through her music she has opened doors for people of all ages, from all walks of life, through the charities she supports with teams of volunteers. Under the mentorship of the likes of John Gibbons, conductor and vice Chairman of the British Music Society, Erroyln Wallen Composer, her music has become confident and assured whilst maintaining its unique style. Her concerts are extremely popular so do pop back to the website from time to time for details of forthcoming Events. Click on the link below to have a listen to some of her works.
“London Rhapsody is a composition by Joy Sigaud, played live at The beautiful Orangery Kensington Palace by the Philharmonia Orchestra. The drums are not incidental. They intertwine, interrupt amongst the cellos, solo flute and oboes with states of grace. Determined, forceful and ultimately triumphant!”
This is the story and inspiration for London Rhapsody:
Who has a story to tell?
The mist has turned to dense fog
But who is fearful?
Can you fear what you do not know?
Yes you can
The things you do know can fill the heart with dread
Is this where we have come?
As the heart keeps beating we will go on
Everyone has a different walk
We all arrive to the same destination
Everyone has a different story to tell
So tell it!
