BeVox is owned and run by the husband and wife team of Timothy and Toni Allen.
Tim is responsible for everything musical, including writing arrangements, recording rehearsal tracks, creating backing tracks, running the weekly sessions, selecting and rehearsing soloists, and conducting all concerts.
Toni runs the administrative side of the choir, including greeting everyone as they arrive at weekly sessions and working out the logistics for events. She also does all the graphic design work for our promotional material.
Toni and Tim got engaged at the end of BeVox's "Circle of Life" event in December 2013, and were married in 2015.
We take great pride in the rehearsal materials we provide to our singers. Our rehearsal tracks are all recorded especially for us, and featuring some incredibly talented singers. Their details are below.
Eloise sings the female parts on a number of our learning tracks. She is equally at home with classical repertoire and showtunes, and her CV includes achievements such as BBC Radio 2's Choirgirl of the Year, reaching the final 20 for "How do you solve a problem like Maria?", and providing the recorded vocals for the climax of the Olympic Games Closing Ceremony. She is a regular part of Gareth Malone's hand-picked "Voices" ensemble, the Monteverdi Choir, and the choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and has a string of recording credits to her name.
Rebecca provides the female vocals for some of our earlier learning tracks. She played the lead role of Molly in the UK tour of "Ghost" throughout 2013 and 2014, and has gone on to appear in award-winning productions such as "Dogfight" at the Southwark Playhouse, and "City of Angels" at the Donmar. In 2017, Rebecca won an Olivier award for her performance in "Showboat". As a fluent Welsh speaker, Rebecca regularly appears in Welsh-language dramas on S4C.
Alastair is the male voice on the vast majority of our learning tracks. He's a professional singer and actor who has some incredible credits to his name, including the 50th Anniversary recording of West Side Story, the West End productions of "Blood Brothers", "Cabaret", and "Caroline, or Change", and regular performances as a Westminster Abbey chorister. Alastair is also an acclaimed singing teacher, with a thriving teaching practice in North London.
Zoë sings soprano on some of our more recent learning tracks. Her specialism is in baroque music, especially opera, and she has sung at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden and the BBC Proms. She performs with groups such as the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Gabrieli Consort, and has appeared as a soloist on BBC Radio Three.
Additionally, both Tim and Toni occasionally appear on the rehearsal tracks.
