Conducting

[one_fourth]

I’ve been conducting choirs professionally for 18 years. Most of my recent work has been with smaller ensembles that specialise in either Renaissance or contemporary classical music — but I try to stay versatile!

Composing

[one_fourth]

Occasionally I write music. It’s usually either on commission or to fulfil the particular needs of a group I’m involved with. One commission was broadcast on the BBC (very briefly!), another is on a commercially-released CD in Belgium and a third won a UK composition prize in 2015.
