Between 2011 and 2015, choral conducting became my focus when, as Director of Music at Queens’ College, Cambridge, I greatly enhanced the national profile of the college choir.
This year I am acting as assistant conductor and continuo player in performances of Bach’s St Matthew Passion across Europe, as well as appearing as a soloist in chamber music concerts in the UK. (For concert dates, see my Diary.)
As a conductor and director, I aim to create a spirit of collective endeavour, harnessing the musicianship of all the performers to create powerful, meaningful performances. I enjoy activating and developing the musicianship of those around me; while not afraid to provide strong leadership when needed, I see my role primarily as one of enabling, providing the framework within which individuals can perform freely.
