Epsom Chamber Choir are delighted to welcome Mark Biggins as our new conductor following the departure of our former musical director, Piers Maxim, last spring. Mark took up the baton with us in September and will conduct the choir for the first time for our autumn concert in October. Mark already has a wealth of choral and conducting experience having sung and conducted widely in this country as well as in Europe and the US. He has recently been appointed as Assistant Chorus Master to the ENO at the Coliseum.
Mark says he has really enjoyed his rehearsals with us so far and is looking forward to giving his time and energy to the choir. We are fortunate to have obtained someone of his calibre to lead the choir and to maintain the high standards to which we aspire.
We are looking forward to a year of interesting and inspiring music, starting with “A Heavenly Vision”, a programme of celestial choral music spanning the centuries, from C15th to the present day. This is followed by an exciting collection of choral works by JS Bach and friends – “A Family Affair” in March and an eclectic mix of ancient and modern works with a cosmopolitan theme for our summer concert – “Sounds of the City”.
In November Epsom Chamber Choir will also be joining with the Vivace Chorus and the Brandenburg Sinfonia for a concert in Guildford Cathedral under the musical direction of Jeremy Backhouse.
For full details of all our concerts please see “Concerts” link.
We do hope our regular supporters will join us on this year’s musical journey; if you have not previously heard us sing we would invite you to give us a try by attending one of the above events. We hope to see you there!
