Who We Are

inChoir Leaders

The Musical Director for inChoir is Mark Heppell. Mark started inChoir in East Grinstead in February 2009. He is an experienced MD and has worked on many shows in East Grinstead, Crawley and Horsham. His credits include The King and I, The Wizard of Oz, Les Miserables, Jack the Ripper, Magic of the Musicals, Tommy, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Return to the Forbidden Planet, Jekyll & Hyde, and Rent among many others. 

He plays keyboard in local function band The Outfit and works regularly as accompanist, teacher, cocktail pianist, pit musician and repetiteur. Along with our inestimable vocal coach, Karen O'Connor, Mark is responsible for all the arrangements used by inChoir. He tries to get to as many inChoir sessions as possible, and regularly runs the sessions in East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, Tunbridge Wells, Dorking and Crawley.

He also tells the most appalling jokes, so if you know any better ones, please let him know.

Jude has always loved music and has sung and danced since she was very young (whether people wanted her to or not!). She completed 4 years professional training, gaining a diploma in musical theatre and a teaching diploma in Speech and Drama. She worked professionally in Rep., community theatre and theatre in education, before spending three years travelling the world on cruise ships.

In recent years, Jude has run drama and musical workshops for children and adults. She has sung in function bands, big bands and duos and met Mark whilst playing the lead locally in Jack The Ripper, the musical.

Jude loves working with inChoir in the Oxted and East Grinstead daytime choirs, and has very much enjoyed launching our newest choir in Horsham.
