Conducting

Will conducts several groups in the UK.  Forthcoming events can be found on the Diary page on this site.

Frideswide Voices
Frideswide Voices is the first liturgical girls choir to exist in Oxford, and has existed since September 2014.  Created for 7-14 year old girls to sing evensong in Oxford Colleges, do please get in touch if your daughter would be interested in auditioning.

Orlando Chamber Choir
Lovely small and friendly London-based chamber choir.  Regularly performing in Central London venues, it specialises in Renaissance and Baroque music.  Please do get in touch if you’d be interested in auditioning, since there are occasional vacancies.

Choir of St Mary Magdalen, Oxford
A paid octet that sings at High Mass at Mary Mags on Sunday mornings.  There are regular opportunities for depping, and occasional vacancies.

Ensemble 45 
Based in Oxford, this is a high quality invitational group that has appeared as part of the Oxford Early Music Festival.  It’s formed from students, recent graduates, and not-so-recent graduates, and brings together excellent singers who wouldn’t normally sing together.  Do get in touch with me if you’d like to sing with the group.  To hear snippets of us in action, please click here

Ludus Baroque (Chorus)
