Choirs & Conducting

Choirs and Conducting

I absolutely love conducting choirs- something truly magical happens when you have multiple voices coming together – both musically and emotionally.

I have founded five choirs (Victoria Park Singers, Finsbury Park Singers, High Peak Singers, Bollington Singers and Fosse Singers), which have performed at the BBC Proms, Olivier Awards and Royal Variety Show. I also conduct the Wilderness Festival Choir (2022 & 2023) and the WOMAD festival choir (2023).

Works conducted include Will Todd’s Mass in Blue with full band, Bob Chilcott’s Little Jazz Mass with trio, Ole Gjeilo’s Lake Isle & Luminous Night of the Soul with string quartet , and Faure’s Requiem with full orchestra as well as commissioned music When All Was Young by emerging composer Ben Lee.  I have also launched ITV Voices.  One of my proudest moments was working with men from Pentonville Prison.

I hold an LRSM with distinction in Choral Conducting (2014) and have studied with the Association of British Choral Directors on their advanced programme. I am also an advocate of good vocal health and up to date vocal teachings. I recently studied on the Estill EMT (Estill Master Trainer) course with Anne Marie Speed.  In 2015 I was awarded a BBC Unsung Hero award for my work with community choir Victoria Park Singers.

April 2022: When Ciaran Mccauley asked me to write a song for his debut album, I didn’t hesitate! ‘You and I‘ was released on April 15th 2022 and went on to become the biggest-selling trance track in the world (Beatport Trance number 1, April 2022).

Jan 2022: After a successful Crowdfunder campaign, I excitedly launched my EP – ‘A Piece of my Heart’. This is a five-track EP of original songs that I wrote over the previous year during the pandemic.
