Our new Musical Director, Geoff Ellerby, starts working with the Choir in January 2018.
A gifted musician and conductor, Geoff has a wide experience of working with choirs and orchestras. He was musical director for BBC’s Songs of Praise for many years and he was also in charge of the Methodist National Youth Choir and Orchestra.
In his younger years he obtained an organ scholarship at the Royal College of Music, his other instrument being the French horn. Geoff is a colleague of David Shepherd, our accompanist, so the choir is looking forward to a fruitful partnership.
The chosen main work for the Choir’s Spring Concert is Vivaldi’s Gloria and Geoff will be selecting more pieces to accompany it.
