New Music Director appointed
Wooburn Singers are delighted to announce that Tom Hammond-Davies will take up the post of Music Director at the beginning of September 2013, when Greg Beardsell departs. We will have had eight excellent years with Greg, and he will be much missed, but Tom will be an excellent successor. Tom is Director of Music at City Church in Oxford, a Lay Clerk at New College Oxford, and founder/director of the Blenheim Singers. He was formerly Organ scholar at Hertford College.
About the choir
Wooburn Singers is one of the leading chamber choirs in Buckinghamshire. Rehearsing in Wooburn, we perform about six concerts per year in the area in towns such as Beaconsfield, Marlow, Amersham and High Wycombe, ranging from a cappella works to large choral pieces.
Wooburn Singers was founded in 1967 by Richard Hickox and has earned a fine reputation as one of the UK's best amateur mixed voice choirs. The 70-strong choir covers a wide and varied repertoire. Recording credits include Berlioz's Te Deum under Abbado, Langlais's Salve Regina and Burgon's Requiem, and a compilation of Music for the Last Night of the Proms with the RPO and Sir Charles Groves which was a best seller at the time of its release.
Wooburn Singers has also sung in London's major concert halls and in other European cities. Foreign tours have taken the choir to Malta, Krakow, Venice, Paris, Prague, Geneva, Tuscany and Barcelona. There is also a good social programme for members and their families and friends.
