Joanna Forbes L’Estrange (b.1971) is an English soprano, composer and choral leader who receives engagements throughout the world. A Master of Arts graduate in Music of Oxford University, she began her career as soprano and Musical Director of the five-time Grammy® Award-winning a cappella group The Swingles and her compositional output reflects her love of choral music, close harmony and jazz. She writes songs (including her own lyrics), sacred anthems, Christmas carols, television production music and arrangements, regularly collaborating with her husband Alexander L’Estrange on their award-winning series of large-scale community choral works. 

A passionate advocate for gender equality, Joanna has become the go-to composer for songs about women.
