As conductor of the Nottingham Harmonic and Leicester Bach choirs Richard has established a reputation as one of the most exciting and versatile conductors in Britain today. His dynamic approach to choral training has resulted in memorable performances by his choirs with such orchestras as the Hallé and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. He also has many years’ experience of leading Come and Sing workshops. His engaging style and inspiring musicianship make these days very special for all participants.
Simon is the Accompanist to the Nottingham Harmonic Choir. He is also Assistant Director of Music at Southwell Minster, having studied at the Royal College of Music, and held posts at Bristol, Salisbury and St. Paul's Cathedrals. Simon regularly gives recitals in cathedrals and churches around the country and his recent disc of organ music from Southwell Minster has been well received by critic and enthusiast alike.
