MY FABULOUS FRIDAY
From learning Arabic to doing yoga, music composer Joanna Marsh is in tune with herself.
We are a family of musicians; my son Henry, 13, is learning the French horn, my sister is a professional organist who has worked in several cathedrals in the UK and my husband Paul plays the organ. My interest in music began as a practical thing – my parents were not wealthy, my father was a church minister and he saw that if we were good at music it would get us a music scholarship to a good school in the UK. So they encouraged us to practise. It worked too well – we not only got the scholarships, we also both ended up working as professional musicians.
DOWNHILL ALL THE WAY I wish I was really passionate about skiing so I could visit fabulous ski resorts with epic scenery. I am a truly terrible skier and hate it, but love the views. I feel I’m imminently about to meet my death on the slopes.
